Type of noun from the sentence

“Seeing the baby the mother rose in her.”

Is the word ‘mother’ in the above sentence a:

(a) Common Noun
(b) Abstract Noun
(c) Proper Noun
(d) Collective Noun



Welcome to English stackexchange.

The word 'mother' is a common noun but it becomes a proper noun and is capitalized when it is used as a name for the mother. This only happens in writing.

“I want to ask my mother whether she is going with us.” (common)
“Do you want to go with us, Mother?” (proper)

Therfore, in your sentence, the word is used as a common noun.
