6- The state is at least twice as big as England. (at least is a degree adverb) I looked up the dictionaries in the net and they didn't write which category it belongs to.
3- john kept eating chocolate.(so kept is acting as a verb be) is there other words like this one?.
8- everything we do is for our advantage.( everything and we are pronouns. How come they come together.
9- He likes to read books. (to read is direct object)(books indirect object)
