The sentence is :

It gives you opportunity you would not have otherwise had.

1- The role of "otherwise" is conj. Now my question is if we bring the "otherwise" before "you" or put it at the end of sentence, the meaning of the whole sentence changes?

2- why in the above sentence the "otherwise" is placed between "have" and "had"?

These are grammatically correct and essentially the same in meaning:

  • It gives you an opportunity you otherwise would not have had.
  • It gives you an opportunity you would not have otherwise had.
  • It gives you an opportunity you would not have had otherwise.

This one is wrong and has no clear meaning:

  • It gives you an opportunity otherwise you would not have had.

This one is not grammatically wrong, but is poorly-worded:

  • It gives you an opportunity you would otherwise not have had.
