I am always facing a proble when it comes to adjective/adverb modifier? is it allowed that adverb modifies an adjective?

Here's below an example:

Carbon-14 dating reveals that the megalithic monuments in Brittany are nearly 2,000 years as old as any of their supposed Mediterranean predecessors.
(A) as old as any of their supposed
(B) older than any of their supposed
(C) as old as their supposed
(D) older than any of their supposedly
(E) as old as their supposedly

I chose (D) but it seems (B) is the right answer?

>> is it allowed that adverb modifies an adjective?
yes!

But here "Mediterranean predecessors" is noun and will need supposed (adjective) instead of supposedly (adverb)

B is the correct answer
