    Default think hard

    Hi teachers

    Do you say think hard?

    e.g. I thought really hard to solve the question, but I couldn't.

    If hard doesn't fit, what adverbs go with think?

    Hard is a basic word, but I think it's hard to use it correctly.

    Thank you

    Dear pessimist,
    This is in fact a common English collocation, which is sometimes used as part of a longer phrase" Think long and hard". "Think deeply" is another possible combination.
    Yours
