Can you please check these sentences. I have to list the adverb then tell which word or words it modifies.

1.Yesterday I saw an exhibit of extremely rare books at the museum.
2.The paper in this old book is particularly fragile.
3.Old books must be handled quite carefully.
4.I usually learn something new from the displays.
5.Our librarian works hard to make the displays interesting.
6.Now she is reading reading both a new mystery and a book about Mount Everest.


2.particularly=is fragile

3.quite carefully=handled



6.both=is reading

  • English -

    5. interesting is an adjective. the adverb is hard = work (answers the question how?)

    6. now = reading (answers the question when)

    Adverbs tell: when, where, why, how
