    Kindly explain
    Please - This could be an adverb or a verb. It depends on the sentence.

    Could you, please, tell me why? - adverb

    We try very hard to please our customers. - verb

    May - This is a modal auxiliary (modal auxiliary verb). It could be the name of a month, in which case it would be a noun.

    It may rain today.

    Why - Interrogative pronoun or a conjunction - It depends on the sentence.

    Why are you asking - interrogative pronoun

    Can you tell me why you are asking? - conjunction
