I need help with prepositional phrases. I’m given sentences and I’m supposed to rewrite them changing the position of the prepositional phrases so that the sentences are not confusing. If they are already correct, I’m supposed to write correct.
I made corrections. Are these correct Ms. Sue? Thank you so much for the help as well.
4. Irish water spaniels are funny-looking dogs with tufts over their faces of curly hair.
*ANSWER* Irish water spaniels are funny-looking dogs with tufts of curly hair over their faces.
5. People in Hungary used dogs called vizslas for hunting for centuries with falcons.
*ANSWER* People in Hungary for centuries used dogs called vizslas for hunting with falcons.
7. Hunters with English foxhounds on horseback track foxes.
*ANSWER* Hunters on horseback with English foxhounds track foxes.
8. With their noses close to the ground, rabbits leave a scent that basset hounds are good at tracking.
*ANSWER* Rabbits leave a scent that with their noses close to the ground, basset hounds are good at tracking.
4 and 5 are correct now.
I'd write the last two this way.
Hunters on horseback track foxes with English foxhounds.
Rabbits leave a scent that basset hounds with their noses to the ground are good at tracking.
Thank you so much Ms. Sue!!
You're very welcome, Emily.
