Best Answer

it depends on how you use it. if you write "The President leads the country" it is a verb. but if you use it to describe something, it would be an adjective like in the sentence "Can you hand me the lead pencil?" what pencil? The lead pencil. it can also be a noun like "Lead is heavy."

Therefore, lead can be an verb, adjective, or noun.
