Adverb modifiers help us to gauge how big, bad, or ugly something is. We use adverbs to describe change in information like charts and graphs. Are profits rapidly increasing? When someone corners you and asks, "How is the project going?" and you say "fairly well"; you're trying to give the most accurate picture you can or the best picture of the situation now. How are you? Slightly tired? There is an implied sense that this is the situation now and there is the possibility of change.
