Some adverbs show the possibility of something happening or how likely something is to happen. 

For example:

Never is used to describe something that will not happen.

Always is used to describe something that happens all the time.

Maybe and perhaps are used to describe something that might happen.


Here are some more examples of adverbs of possibility:

Definitely, certainly, clearly, obviously, possibly, perhaps, probably, doubtless, sometimes and rarely.


Now you've got the hang of it, let's begin the activities!
