Adjectives are used to describe nouns, which means they can explain what kind of thing you have, how many things you have, or which thing you're talking about.

The differences between an adjective and adverb are:
-An adjective describes, qualifies and identifies a noun or pronoun, while an adverb describes a verb, adjective or other adverbs.
-An adjective comes before the noun or pronoun it modifies, while an adverb can be placed in different positions in a sentence.
-An adjective answers questions such as which, how many, what kind, etc., while an adverb answers questions like how, when, where, how much, how often, to what extent, etc.
