    Correct Answer
    A. Verb
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Verb" because a verb is a word that describes an action or a state of being. It is the part of speech that typically conveys the action or occurrence in a sentence. Verbs can express physical actions (e.g., run, jump) or mental actions (e.g., think, believe), as well as states of being (e.g., is, are). Therefore, a verb is the most appropriate word to describe an action or a state of being.

    C. Adjective
    Explanation
    An adjective is a word that describes or modifies a noun or pronoun. It provides more information about the noun or pronoun, such as its size, color, shape, or quality. Adjectives help to give a more detailed and vivid description of the noun or pronoun in a sentence. For example, in the sentence "The red apple is juicy," the word "red" is an adjective that describes the noun "apple." It tells us the color of the apple, giving us a clearer picture of what it looks like.

    Explanation
    An adverb is a word that describes a verb, adjective, or another adverb. It provides more information about how, when, where, or to what extent the action or quality is happening. Adverbs often end in -ly, but not always. They help to modify and clarify the meaning of other words in a sentence.
