Note:

The INSTANCE_GROUPS parameter is deprecated. It is retained for backward compatibility only.

INSTANCE_GROUPS is an Oracle RAC parameter that you can specify only in parallel mode.

This parameter specifies one or more instance groups and assigns the current instance to those groups. If one of the specified groups is also specified in the PARALLEL_INSTANCE_GROUP parameter, then Oracle allocates query processes for a parallel operation from this instance.
