    Thumbs down what is the difference between the two sentences? naked or nakedly.

    1) Does lighting strikes people who are bathing naked in the rain.

    2) Does lighting strikes people who are bathing nakedly in the rain.

    Thank you.
    Both sentences are ungrammatical because of "Does lighting strikes..."
    Can you see why?
    "bathing naked" is correct. "Nakedly" is most often used to mean "blatantly". You can look it up in a dictionary if you don't know it. Then, if you still have questions, you can ask again.

    Lighting strikes nothing. 'Lightning' might strike anybody outside in a thunderstorm.

    I explained naked and nakedly here.

    Why this fixation with nakedness?

    See the FrazeIt entry for nakedly for examples of its correct usage.
