How to determine where to place the adverbs in the sentence. For example, in the following sentence which option is correct and why?
According to a recent study linking high social standing to a habitually stern facial expression, models who do not smile adequately in magazine advertisements give an impression of status and exclusivity, even if they are not wealthy or influential themselves.

1.models who do not smile adequately in magazine advertisements give an impression
2.models who do not smile in magazine advertisements adequately give an impression
