    Which part of speech is 'chosen' in the sentence?

    Hi teachers,
    Could you tell me which part of speech is 'chosen' in the following sentence? Is it an adjective?

    It was a perfect ring, perfectly chosen for her by someone who loved her.

    Thanks in advance.

    Seems like an adjective to me.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply. It does to me too. For me it is modifying the adverb 'perfectly'.

    No, it's modifying "ring." The ring was chosen.

    I read it like this: "It was a perfect ring, (it was) perfectly chosen..."

    Hi,
    I would never have thought that by myself. Thank you so much.
