I am quite capable of doing it, thank you. which word is the adverb.

  • English -

    1. Some friends went downtown to see the latest movies. tell me is some a noun, pronoun, or adjective

  • English -

    Keep in mind that not all adverbs end in -ly and not all words that end in -ly are adverbs.

    In that first sentence, "quite" is the adverb.

    In the second sentence, "some" is a pronoun form being used as an adjective -- a pronominal adjective, as it's called.
