    Default URGENT: [voluntarily or voluntary] agree?

    Dear teachers

    Which one is correct? Voluntary or voluntarily in the following sentence?

    Investors who do not [voluntarily/voluntary] agree to this debt swap could face legal actions in the form of collective action clasuses.


    Regards

    Anthony the learner

    You need the adverb here.

    Please don't write 'urgent' in your thread title. The people who volunatarily give their time to answer questions here like to give time to everybody, without pressure.

    I am sorry about adding "URGENT". I didn't see your message when I posted my second thread. Can't remove the word "URGENT" now. Sorry.

    No problem. It was just a request for future threads.
