1. Which event did your school hold?
2. Our school held a fund-rasing event for poor children.

[Is 'for poor children' an adjective phrase in this case?]

3. Why did your school hold a fund-raising event?
4. Our school held a fund-raising event for poor children.
[Is 'for poor children' an adverbial phrase in this case? What about my explanations? Which explanation is common?]

  • English -

    In both sentences, “for poor children” modifies “event,” so it’s an adjective phrase.

    I’m not sure which explanations you mean.
