English/Grammar

I have an English 10 Summer Assignment about grammar and such.

One of the questions is: In the following sentence, which words are verbs? Melissa was worried about her job interview.
a. was, worried
b. worried
c. worried, about

I know that it's not c., and I don't think it's a., but I don't know if was is a verb or an adverb, so I don't know. Can someone explain the adverb/verb thing, or, if was isn't an adverb, what type of word it is?

Also, if you could help me with the answer, I'd be much obliged :)

    What would English be like without grammar? If grammar didn't exist and there were no rules to language, how would that change the way we speak? I made these questions on my own because I think it would be interesting to add into
