Bonjour Mazie ! Here the adverb "seulement" is used as a restrictive, and as such, will tend to be placed in front of the element it's restricting, similarly to the "que" in the negative expression "ne...que". Have a look at the related lesson: Restrictive ne … que = only (compound tenses) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
