    Default deep

    Pursuing the route of heavy discounts must have cut deeply into the profits that would otherwise have been earned.

    Is it 'deep' or 'deeply'? Please help.

    Hi Dr.Appalayya

    Which is your intended meaning?
    Ex: ... must have cut deeply into the profits that would otherwise have been earned.

    Thanks, Soup. Now I realise that there are two different meanings; my intended meaning is 'deeply into'. Thanks.
