    Level is an adjective here. And as an adjective, it can be modified by an adverb such as exactly or very. – Alan Carmack Jun 1 '16 at 10:36

To be and a few other words including to seem, to become are a type of verb called a copular. Adjectives can follow copulars.

  • Where's the use of copulars in above? – Anubhav Singh Jul 2 '16 at 3:07
