I am confused with this structure.
I went through an article by Mike on this topic. He explained a great technique - drop the participle phrase and see if the sentence is making sense.

- This trick is working when the sentence starts with the With+ noun + participle structure.

- When such a structure comes after main clause preceeded by comma, it is not making sense to me.

( I know SC is more about meaning and not about tricks. I just want to ensure my understanding about this structure)

Hi sumit411,

In the construction "clause + comma + with", "comma+with" modifier modifies the nearest preceding ACTION.

Example:
Visitors to the park have often looked up into the leafy canopy and seen monkeys sleeping on the branches, with arms and legs hanging like socks on a clothesline.

here SLEEPING is being modified. how are they sleeping? - WITH ARMS AND LEGS HANGING...

please post your doubts on any specific question you have come across facing this issue.

Hi HKD1710, thanks for your reply.



Many daring vacationers who participate in guided boat tours on the Tarcoles River encounter native crocodiles lurking in the shallows, whose eyes and noses are peaking out from the 
surface of the murky water. 

• encounter native crocodiles lurking in the shallows,whose eyes and noses are peaking out 
• encountered native crocodiles lurking in the shallows, whose eyes and noses peak out 
• had encountered native crocodiles lurking in the shallows, whose eyes and noses peak out 
• encounter native crocodiles lurking in the shallows,with eyes and noses peaking out 
• encounter native crocodiles lurking in the shallows,with eyes and noses that are peaking out

The OA is D.
But when I drop *peaking* in D, it is not making sense to me.

Please help me in this.
