    Explanation
    In the given sentence, there is no linking verb. A linking verb is used to connect the subject of a sentence with a noun, pronoun, or adjective that renames or describes it. However, in the sentence "The porcupine climbed a tree," the verb "climbed" is an action verb that shows the action of the subject "porcupine" climbing the tree. It does not connect the subject with any other noun, pronoun, or adjective. Therefore, there is no linking verb in this sentence.
