Hint: A word that modifies (describes) a verb (he sings loudly), an adjective (very tall), another adverb (ended too quickly), or even a whole sentence is called an adverb (Fortunately, I had brought an umbrella). While many adverbs end in -ly, some (such as fast) have the same appearance as their adjective equivalents.

Complete answer:
A word or phrase that modifies a noun, adjective, another adverb, determiner, clause, preposition, or sentence is referred to as an adverb. Adverbs are used to express things like manner, location, time, frequency, degree, and level of certainty.
Example: He is an extremely quick swimmer. Here the adjective "quick" is modified by the adverb "extremely."

The adverb 'somewhere' is used to describe someone or someone being in or going to a certain location. It may also refer to anything that is similar to a certain sum or number.
For instance, He's hiding from us somewhere nearby.
In the above sentence, somewhere is the correct option since it means a place you don't know or don't mention by name.

So, the correct sentence is My pen must be somewhere but I can’t find it.

Note: Adverbs are used in a variety of ways, including:
- To define a verb, use an adverb.
- Use an adverb to modify an adjective.
- Put an adverb next to another adverb.
- Introduce a sentence with an adverb.
- Conjunctive adverbs are used to link individual clauses.
