Can an adjective modifies a noun in the way shown in this sentence?
'Never complacent, Robert sets the standard by which the industry is measured. '

Dear shawrochis,

I'm happy to respond. :-) I'm sorry for the delay--my Magoosh work has been keeping me away from GMAT Club. This Magoosh subforum doesn't get regular attention. If you are a Magoosh student, you will get a more more prompt response by emailing help@magoosh.com.

The short answer to your question is: yes, absolutely. Adjectives can come before or after the noun they modify.

Does this make sense?
Mike :-)
