I worked hard with my mother in the fields. It was hard work, but I learned a lot about farming.
In the passage, what does 'it' refers to?
What is the part of speech of 'a lot'? Does 'a lot' modify 'learned' or is 'a lot' the object of 'learned'?

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. The word "It" refers to the "work in the fields." "A lot" modifies the verb "learned" in the sentence. Adverbs typically answer questions such as how?, when?, where?, why? and to what extent?

    I respectfully disagree.

    The word "lot" is a noun and serves as the direct object in this sentence.

    I = subject
    learned = verb
    a lot = direct object (plus its article, "a")
