The correct answer to this question is B. In this sentence, the word "movies" is a content word. A content word is the name of an object of reality or a quality of a real object. Nouns are often content words because they are often a real object or idea. Content words can also be action verbs or descriptive adjectives and adverbs.

In contrast, function words carry less meaning but help move the sentence along. Function words include parts of speech such as prepositions, pronouns, and auxiliary verbs. Both content and function words are studied in the field of Linguistics.
