    simple and verbal adjective

    Ex :Verb- live

    simple adjective - lively

    verbal adjective - living, livied

    1.you should takes a lively interest in politics.

    2.you should takes a living interest in politics.

    Is there any different meaning or same in above (1.2.) sentence with different form of adjective lively and living
    and how to decide which form should be chosen? When it relate to form of verb.

    "Live" is both a verb and an adjective. "livied" does not exist. Both 1 and 2 are incorrect as sentences. 1 is possible as "You should take a lively interest in politics." but it's not very natural.
