Hardly is an adverb and it has a negative meaning
It usually means not much or that something almost didn't happen
We often use it with the present perfect tense.
"I’ve hardly seen Mary in the last month."
(This means that you haven’t seen her much - maybe once or twice)
We also use it with the word any
"I’ve hardly done any work today"
(This means that I haven’t done much work).
We can use it with can or could
"I can hardly keep my eyes open"
Now try the exercise.....
Rephrase the second sentence so that it means the same as the first.
Use the word HARDLY in every sentence.
You can use more than one word in each gap.
