An Adjective is a word used to qualify a Noun or a Pronoun. Since this word tell us something about a person to a thing, it can modify the word denoting that person or that thing.

The word of adjective should be added either before or after the noun which it modifies.
When this word comes before the noun which it modifies, it is an attribute position
