    I think "enough" is the direct object of the verb "did", which would make it a noun, not an adverb.

    yes , i think so too.it's noun in " ……did enough" this sentence, not adj to modify the elliptical noun "work" .

    "Adequate" is close in meaning to "enough" and "sufficient". It shows that something is good enough or large enough for a particular purpose:

    e.g.
    His computer skills were adequate for the type of work required of him.

    The negative form of "adequate" is "inadequate", while for 'enough" we have to use "not".
    e.g.
    We don`t have enough milk for coffee. It`s not enough.
