What is binomial nomenclature?

Answer:
In binomial nomenclature, name of every organism is composed of two components—the first one is generic (genus) and the second one is specific (species). Also, the generic name starts with a capital letter whereas the specific name starts with small letter. For example, the scientific name of man is “Homo sapiens”. Here “Homo” is the generic and “sapiens” is the specific name.
