    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Sam (Samwise Gamgee) did not bear the Ring on a chain necklace in The Lord of the Rings (LoR). In J.R.R. Tolkien's LoR series, the One Ring was primarily worn on a chain necklace by Frodo Baggins, who inherited it from his uncle Bilbo Baggins. Before them, the Ring was in the possession of Gollum, who referred to it as "my precious." The Ring originally belonged to the Dark Lord Sauron, who created it to control the other Rings of Power. Samwise Gamgee, a loyal friend of Frodo, supported him in his quest to destroy the Ring. While Sam did briefly carry the Ring when he thought Frodo was dead in "The Two Towers," he did not wear it on a chain necklace. Instead, he held it in his hand. Later, when Frodo was captured by orcs, Sam took the Ring to rescue Frodo but still did not wear it on a necklace.
