Adjective or Adverb

Don't get confused about adjectives and adverbs. An adjective modifies (describes) a noun or pronoun. An adverb modifies (describes) a verb, adjective or other adverb.


Find out which word is being described in a sentence. Keep in mind that adverbs never describe nouns or pronouns.

Example

The old man was sleeping in a big bed. (The adjective "big" describes the noun "bed")
