Posted by Odette on Tuesday, March 24, 2009 at 5:39pm.

MAKE EACH OF THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS PARTIALLY NEGATIVE BY USING PARTIALLY NEGATIVE VERB. FOR WHICH CAN THE ADVERB BE PLACED IN FRONT OF THE SUBJECT?

I am confused for which the adverb can be placed in front of the subject and which is correct in the following:

-Seldom does Marie study with Ken. (or is it: Marie seldom studies with Ken.)

The farmers were able to support their families.
-Just barely were the farmers able to support their families. (or is it: The farmers were barely able to support their families.)

The patient could speak.
-Hardly could the patient speak. (or is it: The patient could hardly speak.)

The tenants complained to the landlord.
-Rarely did the tenants complain to the landlord. (or is it: The tenants rarely complained to the landlord.)

There is some food in the refrigerator.
-Scarcely does the refrigerator have some food. (Or is it: There is scarcely some food in the refrigerator.)
