Practically is an adverb that mainly has three uses: 1. It is utilized to express that something is almost true or is virtually the case, although not entirely. For example, "They are practically a married couple." 2. It also serves to convey useful and realistic approaches, rather than theoretical ones. For instance, saying "I am practically minded" means that the person prefers a practical, realistic approach to dealing with matters or problems. 3. Another use of 'practically' is to emphasize the scale or significance of something - this usage often shows a sense of surprise or unexpectedness. For example, "Practically everyone in the class passed the exam."
