    Most are incorrect. Please re-think these and re-post ... with your reasons.

  • grammar -

    Most words that end in -ly are adverbs.

    Bilaterally is an adverb modifying "were descended." It tells where about the verb.

    Only is also an adverb, modifying the adverb, "mildly." It tells how mildly.

    Mildly, an adverb, modifies the adjective, "tender."

    Itermittently is also an adverb modifying "has been."

    You're right that anti-inflammatory is an adjective.
