    Answer:

    Algae are classified into three main classes – Chlorophyceae, Phaeophyceae, and Rhodophyceae. These divisions are based on the following factors:

    (a) Major photosynthetic pigments present

    (b) Form of stored food

    (c) Cell wall composition

    (d) Number of flagella and position of insertion
