    with his arm broken...

    Which are grammatical:

    1) His arm broken, he had no choice but to cancel the concert.
    2) With his arm broken, he had no choice but to cancel the concert.
    3) With his arm being broken, he had no choice but to cancel the concert.

    4) He had no choice but to cancel the concert, his arm broken.
    5) He had no choice but to cancel the concert, with his arm broken.
    6) He had no choice but to cancel the concert, with his arm being broken.


    Since his arm was broken, he had no choice but to cancel the concert.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: with his arm broken...

    The only one I would tell you not to use is number four (4). The modifier is misplaced.

    My apologies.
