How are protists different from monerans?
The main difference between protists and monerans is that monerans are prokaryotes while protists are eukaryotes. There are a vast number of other differences, but that is the main one. Study the deffinitions of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells to further your understanding. Note: easier to understand; classification system.

Why are protists and monerans placed in separate kingdoms?
How are monerans classified?
Amoneran is a classification of the five kingdoms, including Animalia, Plataea, Fungi, Protista, and Monerans. Protist and monerans are the same except that protists have a nucleus, but monerans do not. Animals, plants, fungi, and protists have nuclei in one or more of their cells, and so are called Prokaryotes. Monerans don't have nuclei, and so are called Eukaryotes. Monerans are single celled, Eukaryotic, make little or no movement, and either obtain or make their own food through a process called "Photosynthesis", which involves an organelle called a chloroplast and a chemical called chlorophyll which gives the cell a green color. Examples of this are Bacteriophage, viruses like cold inducing viruses and streptococcus, and bacteria like the ones that give influenza to a person.
