    Hello, teachers.

    Hello, teachers.

    I have a question. Please see the below.


    Question is choosing the most appropriate choice for the blank.

    The party can be moved ___________ into an indoor location if it rains tomorrow.

    Out of four choices, there are two words that I cannot decide which one is better or right.

    One choice is [ shortly ] and the other one is [ easliy ]

    Which one is the right answer?

    Please tell me your thought.

    Thank you teachers in advance.

    Of the two, only "easily" is possible, but there might have been a better option.

    Of those two, "easily" is the better. I have a bit of an issue with the word order in the question though. I would prefer:

    The party can easily be moved ...
    or
    The party can be moved into an indoor location easily ...
    or even (yes, be warned, I'm about to split a verb)
    The party can be easily moved ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
