Identify the best way to improve the underlined part of the given sentence. If there is no improvement required, select ‘no improvement’.

As the sun began to set, Robin dragged lazily her bag and went to his room to take a nap.

Answer

Correct Answer : c ) Robin lazily dragged

Explanation :

Placement of the adverb ‘lazily’ is inappropriate.

Adverb ‘lazily’ will be used just before the verb as it qualifies the action word itself.

In the given sentence, the word ‘lazily’ qualifies the action word ‘dragged’. So, it should be placed before ‘dragged’.

The correct phrase is ‘Robin lazily dragged’.
