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
I think we need to use flatly.. packed flatly.. It modifies Packed.. so flatly needs to act as an adverb..
it doesn't; it refers to clothes and thus is an adjective "you can pack the clothes flat".
The sentence has been complicated with the use of "could be packed" so that "flat" happens to stand directlly after "packed"; rephrase the part to see that it must be "flat".
In the first sight, i too thought "flat(ly)" should modify packed. But, reading the explanation and question again, i now understand that flat should refer to clothes and hence should be an adjective.
Good question. Thanks.
Adjective vs Adverb
Flat vs Flatly
Adjectives modify nouns;
adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs.
Clothing is the subject that is being modified. Clothing is a noun hence Flat.
