    Correct Answer
    A. Abstract Noun
    Explanation
    Pain is an abstract noun because it is a concept or a feeling that cannot be physically touched or perceived by the senses. It is not a tangible object or a person, but rather a subjective experience that exists in the mind. Abstract nouns refer to ideas, emotions, qualities, or states of being, and pain falls into this category as it represents a sensation of discomfort or suffering.

    Concrete
    Abstract

    Explanation
    Concrete nouns refer to physical objects that can be perceived through the senses, such as a table, chair, or book. These nouns exist in the physical world and are visible or tangible. On the other hand, abstract nouns refer to concepts, ideas, or qualities that cannot be perceived through the senses, such as love, happiness, or freedom. Common nouns, on the other hand, are general names for people, places, or things, such as teacher, city, or car. Therefore, the correct answer is Concrete.
