    Which two adverbs do you find?

  • english -

    these, highly, improbable and then

  • english -

    You're half right. :-)

    The adverbs are "highly" which modifies the adjective "improbable," and "then," which modifies the verb, "seemed."

    The other two are adjectives: "these" modifies "ships," and "improbable" modifies "trips."
