Sentence Correction Question on modifiers [#permalink] New post 14 Aug 2013, 07:43
Question 7
The Roman Empire expanded to most of southern Europe and the Mediterranean region by beginning of the first century C.E., bringing the Latin language with it, from which were derived Romance languages, including Spanish, French, and Italian.

a- the Latin language with it, from which were derived Romance
b- the Latin language with it, and from which deriving Romance
c- with it the Latin language, from which derive Romance
d- with it the Latin language, from which derives Romance
e- with it the Latin language, and deriving from it the Romance
First Question
In answer choice A why can’t from which refer to Latin language. I have seen some constructions in which the non-essential modifier refers to the far away noun based on the context. As per the context from which will refer to Latin Language and not Roman empire or it
Second Question
Can we scoop out this portion”,bringing the Latin language with it, since its enclosed by comma on both sides and say that from which refers to Roman empire which is wrong. Can we scoop out such nonessential modifiers when we are trying to understand what the modifier is modifying just as we do in subject verb agreement?
Question 8
Do all non-essential modifers like WHICH has to refer to preceding noun or only eligible preceding noun or noun phrase. When we say eligible does it mean eligible based on grammar or context?
