In which sentence are the italicized words a dangling modifier? (A dangling modifier is a phrase that doesn't modify the noun that's near it.)
A. Arriving ten minutes late, the store was closed for the night.
B. Flying beneath the cloud, the pilot could see the airport.
C. Resting on the sea bottom, the old trunk held many coins.
D. Not knowing the danger, the soldiers marched into the trap.
I don't see any italicized words. Please use capital letters to let us know which words you're supposed to be focusing on.
Please also tell us which one you think the answer is. For example, I will tell you that D does NOT have a dangling modifier because the soldiers were the ones "not knowing the danger."
