    Adverbs many times are created by adding -ly to the end of an adjective.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Adverbs are often formed by adding the suffix -ly to an adjective. This is a common rule in English grammar. By adding -ly to an adjective, it changes the word's function from describing a noun to modifying a verb, adjective, or another adverb. For example, the adjective "quick" becomes the adverb "quickly." Therefore, the statement "Adverbs many times are created by adding -ly to the end of an adjective" is true.

    Explanation
    The word "quiet" is the adjective that the adverb was formed from. An adverb is a word that modifies or describes a verb, adjective, or another adverb. In this case, the adverb "quietly" is formed from the adjective "quiet" by adding the suffix "-ly." The adverb "quietly" describes how an action is performed, indicating that it is done in a quiet manner.
