    Default please helping

    Hello, how can i answer these questions?


    A. Revise the senteces to eliminate dangling modifiers and do not revise any correct sentence.

    1- Ready to pitch camp , the windstorm hit.
    2- The convicts did not yield , thinking they could attract the support of the prees.
    3- Burned to the ground , the Welches had to build a new house.

    B.Combine the tow sentences in each item into a single sentence. Use an appropriately placed verbal phrase or elliptical clause as an introductory parenthetical element.

    1- I turned on the flashers and lifted the hood . A speeding motorist, i thought , midht slow down , see my predicament, and offer me a ride.

    thank you

    thank you
    Your best plan is to follow the advice given when you posted this a few days ago. Have you read it? I gave you explicit instructions about how to do this.
    All you are doing here is posting the questions that I and others have not answered for you.
    It's time you did your own work now.
