Very

Use very before adjectives, adverbs or -ing words. Very is neutral - it is not positive or negative. It makes the word that comes after it stronger.

"Wayne is a very funny man."
"I had a very busy day at work."

P.H. is not only very stupid but rather .....

Paris Hilton is very annoying.
There are too many reports on Paris Hilton in the media.
A five-minute TV report on Paris Hilton is long enough for me to fall asleep.
Edit: I should have read the task thoroughly before writing the sentences. Nevertheless I leave it at that.
Good night!

Not a big fan of Paris

Not a big fan of Paris Hilton, I guess? Smile

How are these sentences?

Miss,Universe is too beautiful to see with a white gown.
Living is too expensive in Europe for migrants.
India has enough resources for feeding the people under povertyline.
These exercises of this nature really help to construct the sentences

Another piece of cake...

This cake is very tasty. Can I have your recipe for it? I shouldn't eat too much of it, though. One piece is enough cake for me to have.

To Chris: I have a problem with the form you have given, connected to enough. Shouldn't it be enough + noun instead of adjective?

Thanks!

Yep!! It's fixed. Thanks a million!!

Chris
