    Well, 92% of those who have voted (so far) have gotten it right. ("I go there never" is not an English sentence.)

    Re: Position of adverbs

    I never go there.

    we can use inversion to emphasize the meaning:
    Never do I go there.

    Hi!
    I agree with you, but this is about Inversion, only.

    Learners should be aware that "Never do I go there" is not idiomatic English.
