    clause

    Are these sentences correct:
    1-This building was constructed in the 15th century, an audacious undertaking at the time.
    2-He was attacked by three men, beaten up and left for dead, a cowardly crime.
    3-This long poem was written in only a few days at most, a superhuman feat.

    Re: clause

    You could move 'at most' back a bit and enclose it in commas. You could also use different punctuation instead of the final commas.
