Syllable adjective

I was wondering as I am understanding adjectives. I'm confused on extrêmement! There was a sentence in my book that saying un extrêmement vieux livre but it was marked wrong when I put extrêmement at the end of the noun live. Why is that wrong?


Thank you!!

Extrêmement is an adverb, modifying the adjective “vieux” in this sentence, and therefore is placed before the adjective.
