Homework Help: Writing...Grammar

Posted by Mandi on Friday, July 27, 2007 at 9:57pm.

Hello,

Would the following sentence be a correct revision of this sentence?

Having risen because of the rains, the hikers were unable to cross the river.



The hikers were unable to cross the river, having risen because of the rains.

Thank You for the Help :)

No. To clearly establish that "risen" applies to the river and not th hikers, a better version would be:

The hikers were unable to cross the river, which had risen because of the rains.
