As I understood, adverbs of manner normally go at the end of a sentence/clause, or they could be placed at mid-position in a sentence. So, if the sentence has an auxiliary verb within then the adverb could be placed:
- Mid position: The adverb is placed between the auxiliary verb and the main verb.
- End position: The adverb is placed at the end of the clause/sentence.
Thus, are the following two sentences correct? if the two sentences are correct, then do they both have the same meaning?
Recently, people were withdrawing their money gradually from their bank accounts to transfer it to an external country.
