Homework Help: grammar

Posted by vada on Friday, September 8, 2006 at 8:25am.

if your baby does not like cold apple juice, it should be heated. I not sure where the dangling modifier is in this sentence. I think it is fine the way it is. could you help me


The problem is the word "it" -- does that word refer to the baby or to the apple juice? Since "juice" is closer to the word "it" in the sentence, that is the standard reference, but it's still not clear. It would be better to rephrase this so there's no question about what should be heated!!
