What about the fact that Plantae can produce their own food and other kingdoms have to obtain it?? lol this lost me marks in a test

Maybe as one domain "Prokarya" to go with the already-existing Eukarya, but as kingdoms I think they're different enough to be separate. Plus, I had thought that Archaebacteria is more closely related to eukaryotes than the eubacteria, that it evolved from eukaryotes after evolving from eubacteria. I could be mistaken though, so don't jump on me if it's wrong.

This is one of theories. Actually I saw one article, where they were solving, what is true based on 16S RNA sequences, but I do not remember the conclusion.
Anyway, about the number of kingdoms. You can put all into one kingdom and than have lets say three subkingdoms (eukarya, eubacteria, archea) and than divide them into many more clades or you can divide them immediately into 6 kingdoms (as are presented here) a and some of them group into some superkingdoms etc. or you can have even 50 or 100 kingdoms, which will supplement todays phyla. This system will always be just made by humans and the nature does not care
Cis or trans? That's what matters.
