Hi nikhilbhat
General rule of verbing.

Noun + verb, Verbing----> Then verbing can modify the entire clause presenting the result of the clause OR the verbing can modify the HOW aspect of the verb.
Noun, Verbing, Verb----> Then verbing modifies the preceding Noun by presenting additional information about the NOUN.

Hy Yash,

This is where the confusion still exists, because ",+Verbing" modifier cannot modify a preceding noun, it only modifies a preceding verb or a complete clause.

Thanks

nikhilbhat , I know that this rule is taught by at least two major test prep companies,
so i can understand why you might assert what you did in this post. I would rethink that position.

What is your source, please?

Comma + verbING can modify a noun.

I have written a half-dozen posts on this issue in the last couple of weeks.

In this post, here, I responded to someone who asserted that a participial modifier preceded by a comma (comma + ING) could not modify a noun.

The question at issue was written by mikemcgarry.
I responded that the participial modifier absolutely could modify a noun, and called in Magoosh Expert Carolyn as double backup,
because this rule has been inaccurately taught for a long time.
(I already had one backup; the sentence was penned by by Mike McGarry.)

Here is another post in which I discuss the issue and cite to a renowned grammar book.

Please read one or both of the posts, both of which contain analysis. Both posts also contain an Official Guide Verbal Review question that breaks the rule you cite.
Hope that helps.

@Yash312f , this rule is not correct, either, although again, I can see why you would believe it to be so.
You are repeating inaccurate information.
What is your source, please?

Please see my post in response to nikhilbhat . That post is here.
