What is one way that the following sentence can be improved with the addition of an adverb?:The mayor pledged to spend more money on the city's roads after many residents complained about the numerous potholes?
Hi Jennifer. If you insert an adverb to describe in what manner the mayor pledged to spend more money this would improve the sentence. For example, you could insert ‘sincerely’ into the sentence: ‘The mayor sincerely pledged to spend ...’. Equally, you could describe the manner in which the residents complained: perhaps, they ‘...complained bitterly...’? I have given you two ways haha, but hope this is ok.
