There were more angry protests outside the Republican convention Friday. （Longman）
Which one of the three choices below does the sentence mean?
1. ‘more’ modifies angry.
2. ‘more’ modifies protests.
3. The context given is not enough to decide which one (that is, either 1 or 2).
I choose 1.
Thanks in advance
- though I'd rephrase 2 as '"more" modifies the noun phrase "angry protests"'. But then it wouldn't be much of a test.
