Hi,

I came across this example in the Manhattan SC (pg. 84, 4ed).

ON the couch, the cat took a nap.

The authors have underlined the modifier and the noun they apparently claim it modifies but I am confused. Doesn't "On the couch" modify where the cat took a nap rather than the cat itself?

Will appreciate any help here.

Thanks.

Wet and hungry, the cat was watching a movie. What is the modifier ? Wet and Hungry. This cat is wet and hungry. Same way, ON the couch, modifies the cat. This cat is on the couch. Notice the upper case used for "ON" .......... indicating that this particular cat is taking a nap "ON" the couch.
