    TOEIC simulation exam

    Ten years ago, few people experienced the --------------------- technological development that has occured.
    A drama
    B dramatical
    C dramatic
    D dramatically
    The answer is (C), I think it's impossible. Here (D) is the best answer i think.
    Here have to a adverb modified adjective(technological).
    The structure should be the+ adverb+adjective+noun.

    To sum up,whether have a mistake in answer or not.

    Re: TOEIC simulation exam

    You need an adjective (dramatic) to qualify the noun 'development', not an adverb.

    What is dramatic is the 'development' rather than 'technological'.

    'Technological' is used to modify the noun 'development'.

    Do both "dramatic" and "technological" modify "development?"

    Yes. They are both adjectives modifying "development." It is a dramatic development and it is a technological development.

    Yes. They are both adjectives modifying "development." It is a dramatic development and it is a technological development.
    So, In front of adjective is incomplete a adverb. Whether i have to determine which are modified by noun or adjective?

    Hello, kiann.
    Yes, 'dramatic' and 'technological' modify 'development'.

    By the way, may I suggest that you use a more helpful title, such as 'dramatic/dramatically'? Please see here:
    https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/a...nt.php?f=8&a=7

    There are several advantages to your using 'dramatic/dramatically' as a title:

    1. It makes it easier for us to guess what your question will be - in this case, it's obvious that you are asking about grammar.
    2. #1 means that it will save people (who are willing to try to help you) a lot of time in the long run.
    3. The thread will be helpful not only to you but also to other people who might have the same question/problem in future. (They might google 'dramatic dramatically', for example, and find your thread some day.)

    I hope you'll understand 'TOEIC simulation exam' is not a helpful title.
