What's the correct position of the adverb "persistently" in the verb phrase "act on it"?

Should it be persistently act on it or act on it persistently?

    Both sound OK to me. – Lumberjack May 29 '18 at 15:32

It depends on what emphasis you want. As "persistently" modifies the verb "act", my recommendation for the choices given is "persistently act on it". Another variation "act persistently on it" would also work.
