In Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, there are example sentences as below for the adjective "missing".
(Sentence A) The book has two missing pages.
(Sentence B) The book has two pages missing.
I get right away that Sentence A is correct. And I also feel Sentence B is okay but I cannot explain the reason.
For instance, the sentence "This is a book good." is incorrect as the one-word-modifier "good" comes after the noun "a book" which it modifies. I know when the modifier consists of more than one word, it can be placed after the noun, as in "This is a book good to read." and this sentence is correct.
How does a one-word-modifier come after the noun it modifies and there is no problem in the sentence B?
