Systems can be broadly classified by their architectures, which define what executables will run on which machines.
Machines that run different kernels due to underlying hardware differences may be able to run the same application programs.

For Sun kernel architecture, such as sun4m, sun4c, and so forth. This defines which specific SunOS kernel will run on the machine, and has implications only for programs that depend on the kernel explicitly. eg: ps(1).

Architecture name is used to determine whether the application binaries for any application architecture can run on the current host system or not.

to learn more about sun kernel architecture, read this book.(Solaris Internals : Core Kernel Architecture, Vol. 1)

You posted this question twice.  You might want to ask to have the second post deleted and your points refunded.  Also, call me silly, but this sounds a lot like a homework question.  Either way, shivsa gave some good information here.
