Form an adjective from the following noun:

envy

A

envyful

B

envious

C

envied

D

enviless

Answer

Optin B is correct since -ious changes the noun form into an adjective, attributing it as 'having the quality of'. In "Her envious colleagues sought to destroy her career", the adjective 'envious' modifies the noun 'colleagues'. The word 'envied' is a verb, and not an adjective, hence option C is incorrect. The words 'envyful' and 'enviless' do not exist in the English language, they're not used in Standard English, hence options C and D are incorrect.
