Adverbs

1. John ran fast.
2.she drank very hot tea.
In the first sentence the verb is ran and how did he run? Fast.
In the second sentence we come to know that she drank the tea which was very hot.
So, when we come across a word that adds more meaning to a verb, adjective it’s called adverb. It modified the sentences and phrases.
The four types of adverbs are:
1.Adverb of manner.
It tells us how the action is performed. It gives us answer to the question how?
Example– He worked quietly. How did he work? Quietly.
2. Adverb of time.
It tells us when the action has happened. It answers the question when?
Example– she will go tomorrow. When will she go?
3.Adverb of place.
It gives us information about where the action has happened. It gives us answer to the question where?
Example– They came downstairs.
4. Adverb of frequency.
It tells us how often something occurs.
Example– I usually go to gym.

Takeaway- An adverb is a word that adds more meaning to a verb or an adjective. Four types of adverbs are adverb of manner, adverb of time, adverb of peace and adverb of frequency.
Underline the adverb and state their kind.
1. She always studies after school.
2. They will play tomorrow.
3.They worked quietly.
4. He sat there.
