Hint: An adjective is a word that expresses an attribute of something. It is the word class that qualifies nouns.

Complete answer: In the given question, we have to find out which of the options include the correct adjective form of the noun ‘king’.
Let us thus analyze the options given to us in this question:
(a)'kingful'- It consists of the suffix ‘ful’ at the end. Therefore, option (a) is incorrect as such a word does not exist.
(b)‘kingfish- It consists of the suffix ‘fish’ at the end. Therefore, option (b) is incorrect as it is a word that means ‘the lean flesh of any of several fish caught off the Atlantic coast of the United States’ and is not an adjective but a noun.
(c)‘kingly'- It consists of the suffix ‘ly’ at the end. Therefore, option (c) is correct as it is an adjective which means ‘having the rank of or resembling or befitting a king’.
(d)‘kinged'- It consists of the suffix ‘ed’ at the end. Therefore, option (d) is incorrect as such a word does not exist.

Note: In this question, it will be helpful for the student to recall the concept of nouns. A noun is a content word that can be used to refer to a person, place, thing, quality, or action. It is the word class that can serve as the subject or object of a verb, the object of a preposition, or in apposition.
