This was the sentence:
Left alone in the house, the thunderstorm terrified the two small children.
I was asked to correct it as an excercise:
Here is my solution:
Left alone in the house, the two small children were terrified by the thunderstorm.
Is this right?
The web site had it as:
The thunderstorm terrified the two small children left alone in the house.
I agree with the website, but I was wondering if my solution was right too.
this a good example of misplaced modifier error...and i think you have done it rit,,,,,
but the only reason why website differs can be the fact that gmat prefers active voice over passive voice...
moreover it is preferred that you use the subject in the very first place in sentence.............
coming out of the dept. store, jim's wallet was robbed...
coming out of the dept. store,jim was robbed of his wallet.....
