In which sentence is the underlined group of words a prepositional phrase acting as an adverb? My sister applied on Tuesday to a graduate school in England. My sister is going to write novels. My sister hopes to be one of the finest novelists in the world. My sister’s grades gave her a place in the top rank of her class.
My sister applied on Tuesday to a graduate school in England.As a correction I would say that "to a graduate school in England" acts as an adverb as it explains where she applied to ie modifies the verb "applied".
