    Cool Adverb Placement

    Hello!

    Where are the adverbs supposed to be in these sentences, please? :

    -Does it happen often? /Does it often happen?

    -It's almost necessary everywhere!/ It's necessary almost everywhere!

    -I can't always be planning things! /I can't be always planning things!

    Thank you very much for your help.
    Will

    It's necessary almost everywhere! This suggests that it is not necessary (for example) in 95 % of places, but not in 100%.

    -I can't always be planning things! /I can't be always planning things! No real difference.
