    Unhappy help needed fast

    what's wrong with this sentence: living standards have improved greatly. Is 'greatly' an adverb of degree? The correct version: living standards have greatly improved. ?

    The sentence looks good. And yes, "greatly" would be an adverb that indicates the amount of improvement. The first letter should be capitalized.
