Can anyone help me with these ambiguous sentences...I don't understand what's wrong with them or how words need to be added to make them clear.
1. Wollstonecraft blamed women's problems on the structure of society more than the men of her time.
2. Her ideas about women frightened other people less than her husband.
3. One of her daughters, May Shelley, who wrote Frankenstein, became as famous as Wollstonecraft herself.
4. The readers Mary Shelley attracted were different from those who enjoyed her mother's work.
5. Modern readers know Mary Shelley better than Mary Wollstonecraft.
Thank you for your help, I think I get it...I have a few questions...
You have questions. We have answers.

I need to add any words to the following sentences, I don't quite understand it using the Writers Reference book....
1. Preferring examples from dressmaking to other occupations, she chose stories that illustrated her points and let the acecdotes speak for themselves.
2. She did not argue and never had by directly attacking those who disagreed with her.
3. Her technique was as convincing, or more convincing than, outright argument.
4. No doubt part of Mary Wollstonecraft's unusually effective writing came from the fact that she not only believed in but also lived by the ideas she wrote about.
What words do I add to the sentences to make them complete/grammatical and logical?
Idun, thank you for your help...I'm so stuck on this stuff...
It's only words your suppose to add, no punctuation changes...
Thank you, that's what I thought it would be...any luck on the other ones?
I understand the bottom sentences, but the first one still confuses me...you don't need to add a WORD?
