Correct option is
A

Family

There is no suffix for genus and species. Family is a taxonomic category between the division and order. It includes one or more genera. Its suffix is 'aceae'. For example, Solanaceae. In case of vascular plants order ends with suffix 'ales'.
Thus, the correct answer is option (A).
