    Adjectives.

    Hello everybody. I would like to know which of the adjectives below suits better at this phrase. Michael is a .......... Smoker. He smokes three packs of cigarettes a day.

    We've to choose one among : violent, fierce, big, chain, strong.

    I think it's big in spite of the meaning of this adjective is big at size. It's a bit confusing.

    Re: Adjectives.

    Hi, Lucas.

    Note that Michael is a . . . smoker would have been a better title for this thread.

    I was expecting to see heavy among the options but as it's not there you need a different one, and it's not big.

    I'll give you a clue: he lights his next cigarette from the stub of the last one, so he's smoking without a break.

    Get it?

    No. Urban Dictionary: chain smoker
