Adjectives Give Color to our Sentences

Adjectives are words that describe nouns. They give us a mental picture of a person, place or thing. The sentence “I see a girl”¬†doesn’t tell us too much. What kind of girl? Tall? Short? Ugly? Pretty? If we add adjectives, we can see a picture in our heads:

  1. I see a cute little girl.
  2. I see a sad beautiful girl.

Which sentence belongs to each picture?
