今度の飛行機事故の_ _ ★ _が調べている
1 調査委員会 2 原因 3 くわしく 4 につい て

The answer for the star is 3. There is something wrong with this exercise. くわしく is an adverb but there is no verb come before it.

The expected answer would be "今度の飛行機事故の原因についてくわしく調査委員会 調べている。". This is not wrong.

However, this is not natural. As "くわしく:KUWASHIKU;in detail" is adverb, it decorates the verb "調べている:SHIRABETEIRU; is investigating", "KUWASHIKU" should be near the verb.

I would say "今度の飛行機事故の原因について、調査委員会が詳し 調べている。".

Language makes Culture and Culture makes Language.
