Should I use “noisy” or “noisily” in this sentence?

She set her cup on the glass table, a bit too noisily.

Grammarly changed noisily to noisy. I think it should be noisily because it should modify the verb set.

However, there are instances where adjectives are used. E.g. Think different.

What’s the correct option here?

Answer

According to wiktionary, noisy can’t be used as an adverb. It’s always an adjective. So your sentence is grammatically correct.

Grammarly could interpret it a bit differently

She set her cup on the glass table, [she is (being)] a bit too noisy.

where noisy is the only correct choice.
