    B. What we learn from the story.
    Explanation
    The theme of a story refers to the underlying message or lesson that the author is trying to convey to the reader. It is the central idea or concept that the story revolves around. "What we learn from the story" is the correct answer because it directly relates to the theme. This suggests that the story is intended to teach the reader something or provide some sort of insight or knowledge. The other options, "The main character of the story" and "The way a character speaks," are not necessarily related to the theme of the story, but rather focus on specific aspects of the story or its characters.

Verbs can be used to show physical actions, such as running or jumping, or mental actions, such as thinking or dreaming.
