Having trouble deciding between adverb or adjective for the word "nearby" in this sentence: An artist had set up an easel nearby. At first I was thinking adjective like which easel ...the one nearby. But then I thought maybe adverb for the question where ...like set the easel up where..nearby. Thanks.
Nearby is an adverb. It modifies "set up" and tells where.
