Choose the correct option
She rubbed her eyes hardly.
She rubbed her eyes hard.

Hard means severely. Hardly means not quite or scarcely: The baby can hardly walk.

Next
The messenger will arrive presently.
The messenger will arrive just now.

If we are speaking of a near and immediate future time, we must use presently, immediately, in a minute, or soon. Just now refers to present past time, and not to future time: He's not at home just now (= at this moment). He left just now (= a little time ago).

Next
He's a very strong man.
He's a much strong man.
He's much stronger than I am
He's very stronger than I am.

Use very with adjectives and adverbs in the positive, and with present participles used as adjectives like interesting. Use much with comparatives.

Next
I hear that he's not very rich.
I hear that he's not so rich.

We can't use not so in the sense of not very. The expression He's not so rich implies a comparison: He's not so rich as you are.

Next
His uncle is in London at present.
His uncle is in London presently.

At present and presently are not synonymous. At present means now, but presently means soon: She will come back presently (= soon)
