    Adjective phrases

    An adjective phrase is a group of words which does the work of an adjective.

    For example:

    =>It is an important matter. Here "important" is an adjective. 

    Now if we write the above sentence this way:

    =>It is a matter of importance. Now "of importance" is an adjective phrase and used as an adjective. 

    In this exercise, you'll have to write the "adjective phrase" in each blank.

    Good Luck! :)
