A noun is a person, place, thing or an idea. The noun which names a particular person, place , thing or idea is a proper noun. For example. Carlos, anmol, eram, delhi, Canada, god, congress party. The noun which refers to general person, place, thing or idea are common nouns. Like, horse, humans etc.
Verb is an action word. It is used to describe an action. This action may or may not be visible to others. For eg. Run, jog, dance are actions that are visible, but think is not visible to others. But since you are doing it, it is a verb.
An adverb describes the verb. It simply tells how an action is taking place. For eg. I run fast. Here fast is an adverb, because it tells how the action is taking place.
An adjective describes noun. It could be the color, the size, shape or anything associated with noun. For example-: I have a black cat. The laptop is the slimmest.
Here black and slimmest are adjectives.
