Solution :


1) ‘cowardly ‘ instead of coward. Coward is a noun while cowardly is an adjective. So either use ‘shivangi and Shweta are cowards’ or ‘Shivangi and Shweta are cowardly girls’. 


2) no error


3) ‘so quickly did shivangi run’ is the right usage. If a sentence is introduced by an adverb, inversion takes place. So ‘did run’ will be used instead of ‘ran’.


4) ‘Manfully’ in place of ‘manly. Manly is an adjective while manfully is an adverb.


5) anything instead of something.
Hardly’ is an adverb used in negative meaning so something/everything can’t be used with it.


6) ‘more nobly’ instead of ‘nobler’.
Nobler’ is comparative degree of adjective ‘noble’ while ‘more nobly’ is comparative form of adverb ‘nobly’.Here we need an adverb to qualify the verb ‘act’.


7)either use very instead of much or ‘much hotter’. 
Much is used with comparative degree while very is used with positive degree.


8) ‘I often meet Shivangi’ is the correct usage.


Adverb of time (always, never, ever, hardly, often, seldom etc) are used before the verbs that they modify.

9) ‘As bluntly as’  instead of ‘as blunt as’ .

⚫Note –  ‘As bluntly as’  is the positive form of adverb ‘bluntly’ while  ‘as blunt as’ is the positive form of adjective ‘blunt’. And here in this sentence we need an adverb to qualify the verb ‘told’. 

10) ‘rather ‘ instead of fairly. 


⚫Note – Fairly is used in a moderate sense before the ‘adjectives used in good sense’ .


The weather is fairly fine.✔️
Her story is fairly interesting.✔️


Rather is also used in the moderate sense before the adjectives used in bad sense.

The weather is rather bad.✔️
The description of the incident is rather boring.✔️


11) ‘as well as ‘ instead of ‘as good as’
‘As good as’ is the positive degree of adjective ‘good’ while ‘as well as’ is the positive degree of adverb ‘well’ .

12) very lovely is the correct usage.

Quite means completely / perfectly. It can’t be used in place of ‘very’.

13) ‘Straight’ is both adverb and adjective. 
Straightly is a wrong word.


14) Use ‘either’ in place of ‘not both’. 

15) ‘How to ride ‘ in place of riding.

16) Straight in place of straightly. 



17)’Never’ in place of ‘ever’.Seldom is a negative word which means rarely so we use ‘never’ with  it. 


18) ‘Anyone’ in place of ‘someone’. 


19) ‘Either’ in place of neither. 


20) ‘Outright’ in place of outrightly


21)Omit ‘as’ 


22) Omit not. Denied itself is a 
negative word. 


23) Adverb ‘well’ will be used in place of good. 

Hope this post serves you. Have a great time ahead.
