In these sentence,Can i change the adverb sequence?
For example:
Often John comes late to class. or

Is it right?

  • English -

    Both are correct, yes, but the second sentence is smoother.

    Although it's true you can put adverbs almost anywhere, depending on what they are modifying, it's best to keep them as close to the words they're modifying so your meaning is clear.

    In your sentence, "often" is modifying (describing) the main verb, "comes." The best placement of the adverb is right before the verb: John often comes late to class.
