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.


The old man was very unfriendly to the child. (The adverb "very" describes the adjective "unfriendly")

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