  1. See my previous post

    Some adverbs do go between the helping verb and the main verb -- but many do not.

  2. 13. I would think that B is the answer. Adverbs normally go in between the helping verb and the main verb.

    I hope this helps! :)

  3. Well, Ms. Sue is more correct, but I still think that B makes the most sense.
