Abstract: This paper proves the Alperin's weight conjecture for the finite unitary groups when the characteristic r of modular representation is odd. Moreover, this paper proves the conjecture for finite odd dimensional special orthogonal groups and gives a combinatorial way to count the number of weights, block by block, for finite symplectic and even dimensional special orthogonal groups when r and the defining characteristic of the groups are odd.
