    • B.

      Verb

    Correct Answer
    B. Verb
    Explanation
    The most important part of a sentence is the verb. The verb is the action or state of being in a sentence and it is essential for conveying meaning and expressing the relationship between the subject and the rest of the sentence. Without a verb, a sentence would lack a main action or assertion, making it incomplete or unclear. Therefore, the verb plays a crucial role in constructing a grammatically correct and meaningful sentence.

In this case, Tom Brady is performing the action of wearing, and the item he is wearing is Uggs. Therefore, "Uggs" is the direct object in this sentence.
