This discussion is confusing and is going to take some of your precious time
but is really helpful for a lot of questions on GMAT.
Consider the following example:
A. Consider univerties in America's 50 States that have less than 100 students.
B. Consider universities that have less than 100 students in America's 50 States.
Option A implies that States have less than 100 students.
Option B implies that Universities have more than 100 students but less than 100 in America. May be some of them study abroad.
What I wish to say is :
Consider those universities that are in America's 50 states and have less than 100 students.
By now, you must be wondering what my question is.
We come across options A and B very often. How do I determine what "WHAT " is modifying?
Any rules of grammar that
anybody know of? (That modifies Grammar or Rules?
