    Please keep quiet

    In the sentence 'Please keep quiet' the word PLEASE is adverb and the word KEEP is verb. Is the word QUIET functions as a noun or adjective?

    It's an adjective.

    Note my corrections above.

    Enclose words you want to mark out in some way in quotation marks, not capital letters.
    Remember to use appropriate articles.
    If you wanted to keep "function as" in your final question, you would need to say "Does the word "quiet" function as a noun ...?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
