Solutions for: App 293 / Adjectives and Adverbs (2)

Revise the most commonly used adjectives and adverbs!
We use adjectives to describe a person or a thing. For example: The tree is high and green. "High" and "green" are the adjectives that tell us something about the noun in that sentence.
We use adverbs to describe in what way something is done. For example: She climbs the tree carefully. "Carefully" is the adverb which is used to tell us something about the verb "climb" in that sentence. How did she climb? Carefully!
In English we form adverbs by adding "ly" at the end of the adjective. For example: highly or actively. However, there are some exceptions: the adverb of "good" is "well". Some adjectives don't change like "fast" and "hard". With others you need to watch the spelling: happy - happily. Safe - safely. Terrible - terribly.
