    Re: need help with adjectives

    The word "business" is usually a noun. It's being used like an adjective, to modify the noun "school." It's the closest thing to an adjective in the sentence, but I'd call it a modifier, not a true adjective.

    "Training" is clearly a noun, "changed" a verb, and "dramatically" an adverb, so none of them work at all.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
