    how do you know when to use "most probable" and "most probably"?

    What is the difference between probable and probably? And how do we know when to use it in a sentence?

    Re: how do you know when to use "most probable" and "most probably"?


    Probable is an adjective.

    Probably is an adverb.


    “Nicotine is a probable cancer-causing agent.”

    “Nicotine is probably a cancer-causing agent”

    Now, you should study more on the difference between adjective and adverb.
