comment Difference between 「なるベく」 and 「なるべき」
@Aki They're etymologically two forms of the same thing, but なるべく has become a word in its own right and needs its own dictionary entry, as the answers below explain. You can see this for yourself if you check a monolingual dictionary―they list it as a 副詞.

comment How is て行く being used in すすんで行く and さいて行く?
@virmaior Yes, that is when they are not 補助動詞 but are used as regular verbs with their literal meaning. (It makes sense to use the kanji when the meaning of the word matches the meaning expressed by the kanji.)
