A part of the sentence is underlined. Below are given alternatives to the underlined part at (A), (B), (C) and (D) which may improve the sentence. Choose the correct alternative.
Question 1: Riding across the battle field, the famous Bhishm saw a large number of dead warriors.
(A) riding around the battle field
(B) when riding the battle field
(C) while riding across the battle field (Answer given in Book)
(D) No improvement
I don't see if option C will improve the question. So I think option D should be the answer here. But answer C is given in question paper. Why so?
- Walking along the road, He was knocked down by a scooter. OR we say "While walking along the road, He was knocked down by a scooter. Former seems more grammatica in exam point of view.
Question 2: While walking in the park on a quiet summer afternoon a mad dog suddenly attacked him from behind.
I think its also a case of misrelated participle. I rephrase it as: While walking in the park on a quiet summer afternoon, he was attacked by a mad dog from behind. Is this correct?
