Adverbs 1. An adverb is a word that describes
(modifies) a verb, adjective, or another
adverb. 2. Adverbs answer three questions about
the verbs they describe - how, when, and
where. 3. Adverbs that modify adjectives or other
adverbs tell how or to what extent.

interrogative sentence, rearrange the question
