    Correct Answer
    B. It must grow from the ground and not be susceptible to ritual defilement
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It must grow from the ground and not be susceptible to ritual defilement." This means that in order for an item to be valid as schach, it must be a natural material that grows from the ground, such as branches, leaves, or bamboo, and it should not be susceptible to being ritually defiled or contaminated. This ensures that the schach used for the sukkah is both natural and pure, meeting the requirements for the holiday of Sukkot.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Most of the leaves falling off a willow twig would likely cause it to become weakened or damaged, potentially invalidating it. While it is not specified how many leaves are on the twig, the phrase "most of the leaves" implies a significant number, suggesting that the twig would no longer be viable without them.
