A prepositional phrase consists of a preposition, a noun or pronoun that serves as the object of the preposition, and, more often than not, an adjective or two that modifies the object.

(A) an adjective or two that modifies the object
(B) an adjective or two that modify the object

Can someone clarify which choice is better? I am trying to understand the use of 'that'. By the way, I know the OA :)

I think that is a modifier.

Because this sentence was taken from here:
http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/ ... m#absolute

Go to this link and search for the sentence. You will find it there. However, I am not really sure which one is the right choice. Although the question is a little silly, I really want to understand which one is the right choice. Any more comments?

I would go with A. Although it seems that modify would be right due to 2 nouns it is modifiying, it seems that modifies would be correct, referring to the adjective.
