Expert Answer

Step 1

In biological classification, domains are the highest taxonomic ranks. These are three in number i.e. Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya. 

Archaea are prokaryotes and have characteristic ether linkage in the lipids of their plasma membrane.

Bacteria are also prokaryotes but have ester linkage in its membrane lipids.

Eukarya are eukaryotes an have membrane bound organelles.

These domains further are classified into six kingdoms with Archaea containing kingdom Archaebacteria, Bacteria containing kingdom Eubacteria and Eukarya containing Protista, Fungi, Animalia and Plantae kingdoms.

Step 2

As per details of the specimen, the cell is prokaryotic and plasma membrane contains ester linkages.

So, the domain should be Bacter...
