In which sentence are the italicized words a dangling modifier? A. Arriving ten minutes late, the store was closed for the night. B. Gazing at the night sky, the young woman made a wish on a star. C. Resting on the sea bottom, the old trunk held many coins. D. Not knowing the danger, the soldiers marched into the trap.

Answered by wiki @


The sentence where there is a dangling modifier is the first one - A) Arriving ten minutes late, the store was closed for the night.
It is dangling because it doesn't refer to anybody - the way it is incorrectly written, it would seem that the store arrived ten minutes late, and not a person. 

Do you know the better answer?
