Below is a sentence in my textbook.
Complete the sentences with what Wei Fen learned from watching movies.

Question1:
‘With + clause’ is adverbial in this sentence, right?

Question2:
Is this an Adverbial Clause of Manner?


Question3:
On the other hand, ‘with’ is a preposition here, ‘what Wei Fen learned from watching movies’is the object of the preposition ‘with’, right?

What sentences are you being asked to complete? Are you supposed to complete them using the phrase "with what Wei Fen learned from watching movies"?

OP is asking about the structure of the question in the textbook. It doesn't matter what sentence the question refers to.

Gualei, don't capitalize grammar terms like adverbial clause of manner.​ They aren't proper nouns.

Q1: Yes
Q2: It does describe the manner in which you should complete the sentences, yes. I don't know if there's a more accurate term.
Q3: Yes.

Thanks for your answers and reminder.
There are six kinds of Adverbial Clause in mytextbook.
They are adverbial clause of concession, adverbial clause of time and adverbial clause of condition and so on.
One is adverbial clause of manner. This can ask questions about manner (how).
For example:
This fish isn’t cooked as I like it.

So I want to confirm that whether the sentence I wrote at the top is adverbial clause of manner or not.

Sorry, I don’t know how to express properly “adverbial clause of manner” in English.
