    deep

    Pursuing the route of heavy discounts must have cut deeply into the profits that would otherwise have been earned.

    Is it 'deep' or 'deeply'? Please help.

    Re: deep

    Hi Dr.Appalayya

    Which is your intended meaning?
    Ex: ... must have cut deeply into the profits that would otherwise have been earned.

    Re: deep

    Thanks, Soup. Now I realise that there are two different meanings; my intended meaning is 'deeply into'. Thanks.
