It is unlikely that a revolver would contain red pepper, but it would save any possible misunderstanding if this were written as: "Helga carried (both) a spray gun containing red pepper and a revolver for protection."Originally Posted by monjinho;778456Doesn't this sentence make it sound like the revolver was also carrying red pepper?
They (my ACT writing practice test writers) say that this sentence is correct the way it is..What do you think?[STRIKE
