      Adverb 

    Correct Answer
    C. Proverb 
    Explanation
    A proverb is not a part of speech. It is a short saying or phrase that expresses a common truth or piece of advice. Proverbs are not used to convey specific meanings or functions within a sentence, unlike nouns, pronouns, and adverbs which are all parts of speech. Therefore, proverb is the correct answer as it does not fit into the category of traditional parts of speech.

    Correct Answer
    A. Noun 
    Explanation
    Nouns usually act as the subject of a sentence. A noun is a word that represents a person, place, thing, or idea. In a sentence, the subject is the main focus or topic, and it is typically a noun that performs the action or is being described. For example, in the sentence "The cat is sleeping," the noun "cat" is the subject because it is the one performing the action of sleeping.

Therefore, the correct answer is 3 people who wrote the book.
