d) having photographed it continually since his teenage years

The adverbial modifier starting with 'having' faultily modifies essentially the doer of the previous clause namely the 'images' as if the images have photographed the park

Hi daagh Sir ,

I have one more doubt suppose there in non essential modifier in D before ing modifier , then ing modifier will modify non essential modifier or images in the first clause.

Regards,
Arvind

I do not think that your hypothetical issue can be a grammatical proposition since an adverbial modifier should modify a noun and its action primarily. but it can't modify another modifier unless the other modifier itself happens to be the subject. Can a modifier be the subject?

Hi Experts,

In B and C the conjunction AND is not correctly used.

Can you'll please clarify the errors in B and C?


B and C are wordy, i.e. these options use more words than option A to express the same idea.

I started running at 3 pm and then continually (ran).
I continually ran from 3 pm.

The second option is better because of concision.

The most widely known images of Yosemite National Park are those made by photographer Ansel Adams, who photographed it continually from his teenage years on.

a) who photographed it continually from his teenage years on
b) who photographed it starting from his teenage years and then continually
c) who photographed it starting in his teenage years and continually from then on
d) having photographed it continually since his teenage years
e) having photographed it starting in his teenage years and then continually


A) Correct.
B) "And" cannot join a participle "starting" and an adverb "continually."
C) "Continually from then on" is redundant.
D) "Having" introduces an adverbial modifier that modifies the entire preceding clause, but the proper object is Ansel Adams.
E) Ditto.
