To encourage discussions OA later


meaning :- 2 facts are provided about JC
1. JC banked on his skills and understanding
2. JC integrated his movie scenes with special effects.

Error Analysis :- the modifiers are not correctly placed.
Option A :- explained
Option B :- same as A
Option C :- Correct
Option D :- modifier 'meticulously integrated' should modify movie scenes and not JC
Option E :- Change of meaning, both the facts are given equal importance.

IMO :- C

This sentence awkwardly presents two phrases intended to modify James Cameron and loses the clarity and logic of the meaning. In the original sentence, these modifiers sound choppy and create too much separation between the subject, James Cameron, and the verb banked. Beginning the sentence with “In his movie scenes” and following that phrase with the relative clause “which he meticulously integrated with his state of the art special effects sequences” allows the subject, James Cameron, to be united with the verb, capitalized, for a stronger main clause.


(A) James Cameron, in his movie scenes, meticulously integrating them with his state of the art special effects sequences,

The participial phrase does not clearly modify the noun in the preceding phrase; use of the present progressive form of the verb confuses the sequence of time with respect to the past tense of the main verb banked.

(B) In his movie scenes, meticulously integrating them with his state of the art special effects sequences, James Cameron

Phrase meticulously integrating … illogically modifies the noun that immediately precedes it: movie scenes; James Cameron, not the movie scenes, did the coordinating.

(C) In his movie scenes, which he meticulously integrated with his state of the art special effects sequences, James Cameron

Correct. The correct placement of the modifying elements makes this sentence easier to understand; the use of which clearly links the two elements.

(D) Meticulously integrated with his state of the art special effects sequences, James Cameron, in his movie scenes

This sentence is incorrectly implying that “James Cameron” is “meticulously integrated with his...” i.e. meticulously integrated is modifying “James Cameron”. The correct meaning should imply that “James Cameron” meticulously integrated his movie scenes with....

(E) James Cameron, in his movie scenes, meticulously integrated them with his state of the art special effect sequences and

The participial phrase does not clearly modify movie scenes; the relationships among the parts of the sentence are unclear.

B :In his movie scenes, meticulously integrating them with his state of the art special effects sequences, James Cameron

the main problem with B is that two modifiers are lying side by side when either can make sense with the subject of the clause "james cameron" .for instance : "in his movies , james ....." or "meticulously integrating them,james cameron .." .OG has shown such side by side placement of modifiers wrong unless they are placed such that only only is making sense with the subject or the other way to solve this is to place subject in the middle of the two modifiers
