Difficulty Level 1

Complete the sentences with appropriate adverbs of quantity. The adverbs of quantity indicate a quantity or a degree. They can qualify a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. Here are some of the most common adverbs of quantity:

  1. beaucoup: indicates a large quantity.
  2. peu: indicates a small quantity.
  3. trop: indicates an excess.
  4. assez: indicates a sufficient quantity, neither too much nor too little.
  5. tellement: indicates a very high degree.
  6. énormément: indicates a very large quantity.
  7. suffisamment: indicates an adequate quantity.
  8. guère: indicates a very small quantity (often used negatively).
  9. tant: indicates a large quantity or a high degree.
  10. autant: indicates an equal or comparable quantity.

Step-by-step method to solve the questions:

  1. Read the sentence carefully. Understand the general context of the sentence.
  2. Identify the word or expression that the adverb of quantity is supposed to qualify. Is it a verb, an adjective, or another adverb?
  3. Decide on the quantity or degree that makes sense in the context. For example, if the sentence is about eating and someone has a stomach ache afterwards, it’s probably an excess, so “trop” might be the right adverb.
  4. Select the most appropriate adverb of quantity from the options given. Sometimes, several adverbs may fit, but choose the one that seems most natural or likely in the context.
  5. Review your answers. Once you have filled in all the blanks, reread the sentences to make sure everything makes sense.

Let’s apply this method to the first sentence of the exercise:

“J’ai mangé ________ de gâteau et maintenant j’ai mal au ventre.”

  1. Read the sentence carefully. It is clear that someone has eaten cake and now has a stomach ache.
  2. Identify the word or expression that the adverb of quantity is supposed to qualify. Here, the adverb of quantity qualifies the verb “mangé.”
  3. Decide on the quantity or degree that makes sense in the context. Given that the person has a stomach ache after eating, this suggests that they might have eaten an excess of cake.
  4. Select the most appropriate adverb of quantity from the options given. “Trop” seems to be the best choice here.
  5. Review your answer. “J’ai mangé trop de gâteau et maintenant j’ai mal au ventre.” The sentence makes sense and fits the context.
