The company advertised goods for sale. The company advertised goods for sale. In this sentence does "for sale" as a adverbial modify the "advertised"? or Does " for sale " as a attributive modify the"goods"? which one is right?

I would take "for sale" as modifying "goods." "Goods for sale" is a common set phrase, meaning objects that are sold by some person or store etc.

"For sale" is explaining the status or condition of the "goods". The goods are available to be bought.

Yes, it would be taken as adjectival on the noun, as the answers below
