  1. Fine until you get to 7. Then you start confusing verbs with adverbs.


    7. They played the games outside. Adverb=played
    no, outside
    played is a verb

    8. The players spent all day there. Adverb=spent
    no, spent is verb, there describes verb, is adverb.

    9. Sometimes the game continued for day. Adverb continued
    no, continued is verb, what the game did.
    Sometimes describes verb.
    To tell try replacing with an ly ending
    For example:
    Happily the game continued for days.

    10. Later lacrosse changes. Adverb=changes
    Awk ! changes is verb
    Try replacing Later with happily.
    See? Later is the adverb.

    11. Canadians partially changed
    the stick and the net. Adverb=partially
    Yes, yes, if it ends in ly you get it, so try my ly trick on others.

    12. Lacrosse is a game that is still frequently played by many. Adverb=frequently
    Yes

    13. The audience cheers excitedly when someone makes a goal. Adverb=excitedly

    14. At the end of the game, the players often rest. Adverb=rest
    try -- the players "happily " rest.
    It works, so I claim that "often" is the adverb
    Here rst is the verb, what they are doing, the action (or in this case inaction)

    15.. The winners are warmly congratulated. Adverb= warmly
    Yes

  3. You have selected some verbs as adverbs. Notice how many adverbs end in "ly" but of course not all. What is an adverb?

  4. Incorrect: 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14 (many of these are verbs, not adverbs)

    Additional adverbs in 3, 12

    Remember that adverbs tell WHERE, WHEN, HOW, etc. Look up words in a good dictionary to find their parts of speech.
