    Default Q. What parts of speech is the underlined word?

    Q. What parts of speech is the underlined word?
    Down
    went the Titanic.

    a) Preposition
    b) Noun
    c) Verb
    d) Adjective

    I think the correct answer should be Adverb which is absent here.

    What do you think about it?

    If we said "Titanic went down", what would you think?
    If we said "Titanic went down quickly", what would you think?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
