Hi guys,

I was watching a video on gmat modifiers and where the example below was wrong.

Incorrect: "Gina walked toward the car carrying a laptop."

If I added a comma (",") after "car", would the sentence be accepted on the gmat?

My example: "Gina walked toward the car, carrying a laptop."

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.



To add to above point..
1) without comma
It modifies the preceding noun or noun phrase..
Here it is car and so WRONG
2) with comma
It modifies the preceding clause..
So HOW was Gina walking towards car.. .Carrying a laptop
