    Is it adjective?

    Consider the below examples

    I had a test.
    I had a written test.

    Correct the word.
    Correct the underlined word.

    In above examples, words 'written' and "underlined' are adjectives. In above examples, adjectives are placed before noun.

    Now, please consider the example below.

    Norway is located in northern europe.

    Here, 'located' is placed after noun and so can 'located' be an adjective?

    Sorry, i thought it is good to start another thread than continuing my previous thread.

    Re: Is it adjective?

    Adjectives can function attributively as pre-s (before the noun) and predicatively as a complement. 'Located' can function as a modifier. It does so in your sentence. It is fine to consider it an adjective.

    See my corrections above. You need to work on your use of articles.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
