    Dangling

    Isn't the following sentence an example of, what they say, "dangling modifier"?

    Judging by the results of previous schemes, notably the food-for-work programme, which successfully prevented famine in post-colonial India, the quality of the work is not the priority.

    Re: Dangling

    No. It's an example of ellipsis.
    Judging by the results of previous schemes, ... , (I would say that) the quality of the work is not the priority.
