Regarding " I am well ", may I know if ' well ' is an adverb or adjective ? It looks like an adv from my point of view because it is used to answer a question starting with ' How '

Q : How are you today ?

A : I am well :)

I wonder if my definition is correct ?

It is an adjective in that sentence because copula verbs don't take adverbs- the word describes the subject and doesn't modify the verb. ;-)
