The two kingdom classification was given by Linnaeus made two phyla i.e.,Plantae and Animalia. Two kingdom of classification has certain demerits :- It does not distinguish unicellular and multicellular organisms, prokaryotes and eukaryotes, photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic. Five kingdom of classification was proposed by R.H.Whitaker by adding a new kingdom a Kingdom Fungi.

Carl Von Linnaneus classified the living beings into two kingdoms -
plant kingdom and animal kingdom
But it was later criticized as it failed to classify organism like euglena, which posses both the characters of plants and animals or fungi, which bear some characters not common to plants.
So, in 1969, R.H whittaker, an american ecologist advocated a five-kingdom system of classification.
Kingdom - Monera,Protista,Fungi,Plantae and Animalia.
This five-kingdom classification system classified all the living organisms in their corect order. Therfore, it is advantageous over Two-Kingdom classification.
