Ending a sentence with an adverb

Ending a sentence with an adverb

An adverb is a word that modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. The adverb can be used in a sentence at the end or at the beginning. When the adverb comes after the verb, it usually gives additional information about the verb’s action. In this case, we often use an auxiliary verb (be, have, do) with the past participle form of a verb.

The following are examples of sentences wherein the adverb has been used in the end. The adverb usually answers the question “how?” or “in what way?”
