Correct option is D)

Taxon and category are different from each other. The taxon is the group of the organisms which is considered as a group during classification. For example, the class Mammalia is a taxon. A category is the level of the taxon. For example, the taxa Mammalia and Aves both have the same category because they are both classes. The major taxonomic categories are domain, kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species.
Systematic do not show hierarchical classification. It deals with the study of the diversification of living forms, both past and present, and the relationships among living things through time.
So, the correct answer is option D.
