It looks as if you have LOTS of studying to do. Read AND STUDY the information in the following linked webpages. Then try again.
I know a adjective descibes a noun and a adverb a verb, adjective or adverb but with this review I have trouble with the sentance.
Let's just take the first sentence. And be sure to keep in mind that not every verb has an adverb and not every noun has an adjective.
The - article
test - noun
of - preposition
wills - noun
between - preposition
Jack Byrnes - noun
Greg Focker - noun
escalates - verb
to - preposition
new - ADJECTIVE
heights. - noun
Now you take the second sentence and let me know what you come up with.
It has taken 10 years (adjectives), two little (adjectives) adorable (adverb)Fockers with wife Pam and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get "in" with his tightly (adverb) rudely (adverb) father-in-law, Jack.
Here is a good explaination of adjectives and adverbs, how to use them, how to recognize them,and some easy exercises. It wont take you long here:
10 (adj) years (noun),
two (adj) little (adj - yes)
tightly (adverb - yes)
rudely (adverb - yes)
Please go through the linked site Bob gave you. Then try the third sentence.
