    What's the weather like/help
    Message from kai02 posted on 24-12-2019 at 21:26:55 (D | E | F)
    Could you help me please with the correct answer?
    Is it
    "Pretty hot" / "Pretty miserable"
    "Pretty hotty" / "Pretty miserably"
    My native teacher told us the first one, but I would use the second answer with the adverbs.
    Thank you

    Your teacher is right. "Pretty hot" / "Pretty miserable" are correct.
    "Pretty hotty" / "Pretty miserably" are not correct.

    The following questions ask for an adjective :
    How is he ? He is fine.
    What is he like ? He is tall, thin and handsome.
    What is the weather like ? The weather is hot, pretty cold, rainy (noun + y = adjective), cloudy, misty, stormy, snowy...

    An adverb will modify a verb of action, not a state verb like to be.
    How was he after the accident ? He was shocked and angry.
    How did he react ? He reacted angrily, hotly (adjective + ly = adverb).
