ok, slightly mixed up about these.

For a few questions, OG says that you must use an "-ing modifier".

Here is my understanding....

words like that, who, and which are adjective modifiers that modify the noun before it.
words like when, where, and any -ing form of a verb are adverbial modifiers, and modify a verb.

but in OG, they sometimes have -ing modifiers modifying the noun (rather than the verb) right before it.

ex:

1.I smiled happily, running to the bus.
2. I have powers enabling me to fly.

in 1, -ing modifies the verb (smiling)
in 2, -ing mods the noun (powers).
