Hint: Adjectives are words that name an attribute of a noun, such as bitter, black, or technical.

Complete step by step answer:
Let us analyze the options given to us in this question:
Option (b.), 'Quantity' is an adjective type that explains the number or the amount of something. The given word 'Rich' does not explain the amount of the noun ‘father’, thus it's not an adjective of quantity. Hence, option (b.), ‘quantity’, is incorrect.
Option (c.), 'Possession' is an adjective type that explains to us the ownership of a noun. The word 'Rich' does not explain any ownership of the noun ‘father’. Hence, option (c.) is incorrect.

Option (d.), 'Distribution' is an adjective type which is used to single out one more individual of a group or a few items. Since the word 'rich' is not used to explain distribution, it is an incorrect option. Hence, option (d.) is incorrect.

Option (a.), 'Quality' is an adjective type which is used to express the nature of the noun. As the adjective 'rich' explains the kind of man 'father' is, we can say that thus 'rich' is an adjective of quality. Thus, option (a.) is the correct answer.

Note: Adjectives of quality are also stated as descriptive adjectives since they describe the kind or nature of the noun.
