Question:
Sunita followed the recipe closely, but the cake smelled placeholder for the answer after twenty minutes in the oven.
Answer:
The answer strangely is not correct.
Explanation:
The adjective strange is correct because it is describing the noun cake, not the verb smelled. Smelled is a linking verb here, and strange is its subject complement. Remember that subject complements are always nouns or adjectives, never adverbs.
