A very annoyed tone. (grammatically correct)

He seemed much annoyed. (grammatically correct)

I would like to know if I wrote (or said) “He seemed very annoyed” whether the native speaker would consider it as being a mistake?

Answer

He seemed very annoyed.

The sentence seems natural. The adverb very modifies the adjective annoyed.
