Hi, I have a question about gerund. And this is a question in my book.
The cell-phone device Auto-Lock prevents _ _ _ dialing numbers. (accident)
Can 'accidental' be the answer?
Someone just explained me that only 'accidentally' can be the answer because only adverb can modify gerund.
But, after googling, many people said adjective can modify gerund as well.
So if accidental can't be the answer, then, what's the meaning if I fill the blank with accidental in that sentence? :?:
Please help me. Thank you as always~!
