    Your book is wrong. You are correct. Low is an adjective.

  • In is a preposition. Low is an adjective in this usage. This question is answered by a dictionary, which means it's general reference.

1 Answer 1


The word in is a preposition. The entire preposition phrase in a low voice acts an an adverb in the sentence. It could easily be replaced withe the single word softly. The word low is an adjective.

    Note that ELL also requires a modicum of research, even if the OP doesn't really know where to look. A dictionary is generally a good start.
