    Hi,

    A available job.
    A job available

    -There are plenty of jobs available in the area.

    -There are plenty of available jobs in the area.

    Can we replace a noun with an adjectice?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure what your question means exactly.
    'Available' is an adjective, and 'job' is a noun in both of your examples.

    I just would like to know whether the two sentences are OK or not.

    Re: available

    They're both fine, but you asked "Can we replace a noun with an adjective?" In the examples you gave, where did you want to do this?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
