The general rule is

In the sentence that you have mentioned
"seek" is the correct verb.

I will post them in couple of days. Looks like I asked for some work for the weekend. What the heck:lol: we are here to learn from each other. anyway.

Folks read about phrases ( especially absolute phrases if you want to get most of the modifier SC questions correct ) I will post the link for this as well.

If you find any new rules then add to the list I will be posting. This will generate notification of any new rule and also help the newbies .
