I JUST WANT SOMEONE TO CHECK MY ANSWERS SO I CAN BE SURE THAY ARE RIGHT.
9. Which word is modified by the adjective in the sentence below?
Steve works faithfully at his job; he has never missed a single day.
10. Which word is modified by the adjective in the sentence below?
Three groups of students are going to her show.

Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus.

number 9 is wrong... an adjective modifies a noun/pronoun, however, what you chose was a verb
as for number 10, three is also wrong. Again, what an adjective describes is a noun/pronoun. However, "Three" is an adverb. It is an adverb because it describes the adjective "groups". And groups is an adjective because it describes a noun. So the answer to #10 is the noun that "groups" modifies

@babedoll78 are you there?
First of all, @lgbasallote is right about the fact that an adjective describes a noun. In 9 there is an adverb in the sentence, faithfully, but there is also an adjective, single. Faithfully describes the VERB works and single describes the NOUN _______.
And yes, in 10 three is in fact an adverb. Most people think that adverbs only describe verbs; 'he ran QUICKLY', but and adverb can also describe an adjective; 'the BRILLIANTLY colored feather in his cap caught my eye.' The adjective COLORED describes FEATHER and the adverb BRILLIANTLY describes COLORED.
Good job @lgbasallote!
