Hello! Again I was confused what to use in this sentence "clear" or "clearly" and chose the second. It was wrong. Please explain why?

In this sentence you need an adjective that describes the subject (it): It is clear.

Thank you for explanation. I shall remember when I use a subject I have to mind an adjective.
