This is one of the topics found in practically every GED language test. It is crucial you understand the difference between adverbs and adjectives. adjectives describe a noun or pronoun while adverbs describe the way in which, when, or why something is done.

Prepositional phrases can also be used as adverbs. Then, they are describing verbs and answer questions like when, how, or why. Sometimes, prepositional phrases can also be used as adjectives. In that case, they are scribing nouns.
