I think that sounds pretty good to me - although i'm not a teacher.
The adverb describes HOW something is done - in this case, the VERB is 'looked'.Originally Posted by taa81
Looked is the verb, and so the adverb - 'hopefully', is describing it.
You weren't completely wrong, i must say.
But the adverb doesn't necessarily describe what the subject is feeling.
See, look at this example:
The boy swfitly stole the cake.
'Swiftly' being the adverb, it describes how he stole ('stole' is the verb) the cake, and not really what the subject felt like when he was doing so.
I hope my addition makes sense, and have fun with English! :)
