Correct Answer(b) order and genus

 Taxonomic hierarchy is the arrangement of various organisms into successive levels based on their biological classification.

It could be either in a decreasing or an increasing order from kingdom to species and vice versa. The levels of the hierarchy are called taxonomic categories or ranks.

The kingdom is the highest rank followed by division, class, order, family, genus, and species.
