    Thumbs down They swam in the nude,nude(naked),being naked in the pond.

    1) They swam in the nude in the pond.

    2) They swam nude(naked) in the pond.

    3) Being nude(naked), they swam in the pond.

    4) They swam nakedly in the pond.

    do these sentences above carry the same meaning and when should i use adjective and adverb after these sentences? and can i question these sentences with ''How''? or ''why''?

    Thank you.

    They swam naked in the pond.

    Were they wearing anything while swimming in the pond?
    Did they have any garments on while swimming in the pond?

    1 & 2 are just fine with "nude" -- you don't need to use "naked" although that works.
    3. This feels incorrect -- their state of being nude does not necessarily mean they had to swim in the pond but that is what your sentence is attempting to say. I would use 1 or 2 instead.
    4. Can you really swim "nakedly?" -- no, that makes no sense. "They swam naked in the pond."
