SAT English- Sentence Correction

Problem

Identify, name, and correct the error in the following sentence.

Carl, please pick me up from the airport quick so we arrive at the baseball game on time.

Solution
The word quick modifies the verb pick up, so it should be an adverb. The sentence should read “Carl, please pick me up from the airport quickly so we arrive at the baseball game on time.”
