Sentence Correction: Parts of Speech - Adverb

Which of the following is NOT an adverb?

Incorrect. Carefully is an adverb. There are three ways of telling that carefully is an adverb.

1. Carefully ends with -ly, which is a typical adverb suffix.

2. If we delete the -ly, we're left with an adjective (careful).

3. Carefully can describe verbs (e.g., Jane drives carefully).

Incorrect. Very is an adverb. Although very does not end with the typical adverb suffix -ly, it can describe adjectives (e.g., John is very nice) and adverbs (e.g., John drives very carefully), which is only something an adverb can do.

You're right! Quick is an adjective.

Carefully
Very
Quick
