    Absolutely is an intensifier because it is used to emphasize the degree or extent of something. It is often used to add emphasis to an adjective or adverb, making it stronger or more extreme.

    "Totally" is considered an intensifier because it is used to emphasize or strengthen the meaning of a word or phrase.

    • A.

      Yes

      No

    Explanation
    Yes, "quite" can be used as an intensifier in certain contexts. It is often used to emphasize or strengthen the meaning of an adjective or adverb. For example, "I am quite tired" or "She is quite beautiful." In these sentences, "quite" intensifies the degree of tiredness and beauty. However, it is important to note that "quite" can also be used in other ways, such as to mean "fairly" or "rather," depending on the context.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    "Pretty" can function as both an intensifier and an adjective. As an intensifier, it is used to emphasize the degree or extent of something, such as "pretty good" or "pretty fast." As an adjective, it describes the quality or appearance of something, such as "a pretty dress" or "a pretty flower." Therefore, "pretty" can fulfill both roles in a sentence.

    Correct Answer
    D. Very
    Explanation
    An intensifier is a word or phrase that adds emphasis or strength to another word or phrase. In this case, "very" is the correct answer because it is a commonly used intensifier that modifies adjectives and adverbs to make them stronger. It intensifies the meaning of the word it is modifying by indicating a high degree or level of the quality being described.

    B. Absolutamente
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Absolutamente" because it is the intensifier that has the same meaning as "Absolutamente" which means "Absolutely" in English. The other options "Completamente", "Totalmente", and "Bastante" do not have the same meaning as "Absolutamente".

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    An intensifier is not a word that gives a weak meaning. Instead, it is a word or phrase that adds emphasis or strengthens the meaning of another word. Intensifiers are used to make a statement more forceful or to express a higher degree of a quality or action. They can include adverbs such as "very," "extremely," or "absolutely." Therefore, the correct answer is "No."
