Position of Adverb in sentences

I aslo have a following question in TOEIC test" Since Takahashi attends afternoon classes, he_______ the night shift" Answer: A.will be always working B.will always be working C.will be working always D.always will be working
I chose A because adverb is standing after Verb Be and before normal Verb But the right answer is B. Can you help me explain Why?

H! m!nh 28,
Concerning the Position of Adverb :
-the adverb can be the prefix of a sentence such :

Interestingly,he survived from the accident.
-also it can be put before an adjective such:

He was internationally famous.
…the real rule: if an adjective came after another one , so the first adjective must be turned adverb.
-the normal use of the adverb is after verb such:

I did well.
-the adverbs of frequency are always before any verb except verb to be such:

I always wake up late
I’m always late for school
-the normal adverbs can be put before the verb to focus on the adverb such:
A:what do you think we should do to decrease chemicals in the fruits?
B:as far as i’m concerned,the answer is not to continuously spray the land with chemicals.
((That’s all I know about adverbs))

abOut that sentence i’m really confused about it … !! i’m going to ask my teacher about it ^^
but I think always and the adverbs of frequency are before V.to B if it’s the main verb in the sentence , !! :slight_smile:

hey Guys, How to delete a post here ,!!
why there are 3 repeated comments !! :stuck_out_tongue:

You may request the moderator, preferably through a personal message.

Thanks all of you so much about your explaination!
Yes. It’s so confused for me in this sentence. Or maybe the question of this sentence is wrong? I dont know! I think so!
Thanks anyway!

***** NOT A TEACHER *****


  1. You told us that the correct answer is B: will always be working.

  2. So I think that I can tell you the reason:

a. will be working.

b. “working” is the main verb.

c. “will” and “be” are auxiliary (helping) verbs.

d. The rule: Place the adverb of frequency after the FIRST auxiliary:

will ALWAYS be working.

  1. Yes, you are correct: place the adverb of frequency after “to be.” But you forgot the second part of the rule: IF “to be” is the MAIN verb:

a. He is ALWAYS early. (“is” is the main verb)

b. He will ALWAYS be working. (“be” is not the main verb)


Thanks James so much! I really got clear explaination!

Thank you for your kind note.
