Correct option is D)

Species is the lowest taxonomic category which is used for the classification of the living organisms. Genus is next higher category above the level of species. It is a group of species which are related to each other and have fewer characters in common. The family represents groups of related genera. The class represents organisms of related orders which constitutes of the organisms which belong to the same class. These organisms are divided into families and so the organisms from the same order cannot belong to the same family. 
Thus, the correct answer is option D.
