Rules of Adverbs:
- So and Too: They should not be used without their co-relatives that and to.
Eg: 1. He is so rich that he can buy anything
- He is too intelligent.
- Some words retain their form when they become advers: Fast, First, next, back, ill, better, best
- Adverbs ending in –ly form the comparative by adding more and superlative by adding most.
Eg: This work is more beautifully done than that work
The scenery of Kashmir is most lovely of all.
- Adverbs of manner, Place and time are generally placed after the verb or after the object of the verb.
Eg: We visited Kashmir last year.
He is talking on and on.
- When an adverb modifies an adjective or another adverb, the adverb comes before it.
Eg: Her dress was ready nearly (c)
Her dress was nearly ready (Ö)
- Adverbs of frequency such as always, ever, never, seldom, frequently etc., are always placed before the very they modify.
Eg: He sometimes comes late.
She always looks beautiful.
- Enough is both an Adjective and an Adverb. As an adverb, it is always placed after the adjective it modifies. As an adjective it is placed before noun.
Eg: He is enough intelligent (c)

- An adverb can be placed at the beginning of a sentence, when it intended to qualify, not any word in particular, but sentence as a whole.
Eg: Fortunately, he was not present at that time.
- Else should be followed by but, and not by than.
Eg: It is nothing else than/but his carelessness which has led to his failure.
