In the traditional Japanese household, most clothing could be packed flatly, and so it was not necessary to have elaborate closet facilities.
(A) flatly, and so it was not necessary to have elaborate closet facilities (B) flat, and so elaborate closet facilities were unnecessary (C) flatly, and so there was no necessity for elaborate closet facilities (D) flat, there being no necessity for elaborate closet facilities (E) flatly, as no elaborate closet facilities were necessary OE
Its from 1000sc and I agree with you. I though flatly should be used since it is an adverb and we need an adverb to modify packed (v). Apparently flat is an adverb as well like.
I would have picked E
actually i would have picked A... there is nothing wrong with "it is necessary" so i hope no one says it is incorrect due to "It" not having a referrent sometimes people can be very dogmatic in their application of rules
2 problems with flatly: 1) flat modifies clothes... e.g. the wind remained strong... strong here is an adj modifying wind. flat is a adj modifying clothes 2) flatly does not mean in a flat manner. for it to describe packed it would have to be "in a flat manner" not flatly
look at you dictionary what does "flatly" means. Surprised?
flatly // adverb 1 in a way that is very definite and will not be changed SYNABSOLUTELY: to flatly deny / reject / oppose sth * I flatly refused to spend any more time helping him. * Our request was flatly rejected. 2 in a dull way with very little interest or emotion: 'Oh, it's you,' she said flatly.
