    Help needed

    having been asked by my neice for help with home work, I am stumped after being presented with the following:

    10 sentances to be written that contain, nouns, verbs, adverbs, powerful adjectives.

    Although I have no problem with the nouns and verbs i am struggling with the others, can someone offer me an example ?? using adverbs and adjectives

    Thanks
    Clare

    He slowly walked to the spacious mall.

    He eagerly ate the cold, delicious ice cream.
    (I have no idea what a "powerful adjective" is.)

    Re: Help needed

    I think Clare means vivid, strong, meaningful adjectives.
    For instance, "interesting" is an overused adjective that can be replaced with several "powerful" adjectives.

    an interesting book (weak adjective)
    an engrossing book
    a thought-provoking book
    an arresting book
    an absorbing book


    Hope this helps.

    It certainly can be argued that "interesting" is overused.
