#EngQuiz: Adjectives vs. Adverbs

Hi fellas, how was your weekend? I was working this weekend as usual and I hope you had a nice one.

In this session I will give you exercises to differentiate adjectives and adverbs.

Adjectives describe nouns. In grammar, we say that adjectives modify nouns.
Adjectives give a little different meaning to a noun. Examples of adjectives: young, old, rich, poor.

Adverbs modify adjectives, verbs, or expressing a relation of place, time, cirumstance, etc.
Adverbs are often formed by adding -ly to adjectives.

Let’s start
1. I entered the classroom (quiet, quietly) because I was late.
2. The chair looks (comfortable, comfortably).
3. I looked at the problem (careful, carefully) and then tried to solve it.
4. I felt (sad, sadly) when I heard the news.
5. The math problem looks (easy, easily). I am sure I can do it (easy, easily).
6. The sky grew (dark, darkly) as the storm approached.
7. The man looked at me (angry, angrily). He looks (angry, angrily).
8. The girl smiled (cheerful, cheerfully). She seemed (cheerful, cheerfully).
9. The room got (quiet, quietly) when the professor entered. The students sat (quiet, quietly) on their chairs.
10. Monic speaks (soft, softly). She has a (soft, softly) voice.
11. The interview was (painful, painfully) to watch.
12. He watched her (thoughtful, thoughtfully) for a few moments.

Answers: 1. Quietly, 2. Comfortable, 3. Carefully, 4. Sad, 5. Easy – Easily, 6. Dark, 7. Angrily – Angry, 8. Cheerfully – Cheerful, 9. Quiet – Quietly, 10. Softly – Soft, 11. Painful, 12. Thoughtfully
