    2-A nation progresses in times of peace. "In times of peace" is an adverbial phrase which is telling the answer of "when".

    3-We can rise to the greatest heights through education and hardwork. "to the greatest heights" is an adverbial phrase here and telling about "to what extent" we can rise through education and hard work.

    In the following exercise, you'll have to note the adverbial phrase in each blank.
