Figures 1, 2 and 3 are explained at the bottom.

I'm (1) sorry you couldn't come to the picnic on Saturday. The

weather was  (2) cold but we kept warm thanks to

Sofia's    delicious homemade soup. The picnic basket

was  (3) heavy on the way there, but it was 

lighter when we carried it home!! As it was cold and the beach was

deserted, we played games    energetically - and 

more noisily than usual!

1)  FAIRLY would be rude, and inappropriate to the rest of this extract.
2)  MUCH can only be used with comparative adjectives or adverbs.
3)  HEAVY is a word that can move up and down a scale.
is only used to emphasise adjectives or adverbs fixed at one end of a scale.
