people and excitement. Do you prefer gray and blue?

Then you’re ____ quiet, shy and you would rather follow than lead.

這題選1肯定沒問題...但是有點不懂為什麼2 不行?

    likely可當形容詞或副詞,但放在be動詞後時,屬形容詞,通常會寫成:Then you're likely to be quite...,即後面會接不定詞片語,但本句的上下文不符這個狀況(空格後面是形容詞quite)。

    但probably只當副詞用,放在be動詞後面沒有問題,這是副詞的正常位置。
