Hello all,

I have a doubt regarding these two questions and their correct answer choices. In first question, adjective "recent" is considered correct, and in the second question " adverb seemingly" is correct. Modifications are the same for both the answer choices.

You have yourself identified the difference
The first sentence uses "recent", an adjective since it describes "failure", a noun. It is a recent failure.
The second sentence uses "seemingly", an adverb since it describes "unlimited", an adjective. The number of antibodies are not "seeming". The number seems unlimited.
