    1. "There were" is the adverb phrase. The adverb "there" modifies the verb "were."

    2. "hundreds of times" is the adverb phrase. How many times have you GONE to the public library? Hundreds of times (modifies "gone").

    3. During the winter; modifies skates

    4. I don't see anything underlined

    5. It modifies a pronoun or noun.

    By the way, someone said that an adverb modifies "a verb and only a verb." NOT true. Adverbs modify verbs ("he ran FAST"), adjectives ("VERY cold"), and other adverbs ("QUITE slowly")
