TOEFL Grammar Question

Postby tajansu » Thu Aug 30, 2012 1:46 am

Hi, I am working on paper-based grammar exercises now. While practicing, I came across the following question.

Rare species, unlike endangered species, exist in relatively low numbers but are not necessarily in immediate danger of extinction.
My question is --Why do we use "necessarily" instead of "necessary"?

Thank you so much.
