All the words that are in bold are adjectives. As you can see, an adjective gives you some more information about a noun. For example, the adjective ‘little’ gives us more information about the noun ‘boy’.
In other words, an adjective modifies a noun or a pronoun by describing, identifying or quantifying words. An adjective usually precedes the noun or the pronoun which it modifies.
An adjective can be placed before or after the noun.
