    Solution:

            A loiterer is someone who moves or stands around aimlessly.
            Option 1 - Because the word "about" does not add extra information to any verb, adjective, or another adverb, it is not an adverb. Option 1 is therefore untrue.
            Option 2 - The noun "the street" is not described by the word "around." Option 2 is therefore erroneous.
            Option 4 - "About" is not a verb because it does not describe the subject's state of being. Option 4 is therefore erroneous.
            Option 3: The word "about" is a preposition that denotes "on the subject of" or "related to." It means "on the street" in this context. The right response is therefore option 3.
