Meaning doubt... [#permalink] New post 26 Nov 2013, 11:36
Originally developed for detecting air pollutants, a
technique called proton-induced X-rav emission, which
can quickly analyze the chemical elements in almost
anv substance without destroying it. is finding uses in
medicine, archaeology, and criminology.

Hello experts,

Can a sentence has more than one intended meaning, I suppose No, then how to assume the correct meaning.

In the example above, I inferred that it is "technique" which can quickly analyze the chemical elements and not emission. Though proton-induced emission is just a term for technique.
So which is wrongly placed. But as per OG, the above sentence is right .
