    Exclamation Homework Help

    I need help with dangling modifiers. "Flying over the oak tre, the farmer saw the flock of birds that had damaged his crops." How would I fix this sentence?

    Re: Homework Help

    Welcome, CBusack.

    Hint: the underlined phrase tells us about the birds that had damaged [the farmer's] crops, so it needs be near that part, not far away.

    Dangling: "Flying over the oak tree, the farmer saw the flock of birds that had damaged his crops."

    Hope that helps.
