Which words/phrase in this sentence is misplaced?
Having been discovered, Rover looked up at his owner with puppy-dog eyes.
a. with puppy-dog eyes
b. been discovered
c. his owner
d. rover looked up
I am torn between (a.) and (c.). Since the answer (c.) says "his owner" and not "at his owner"...then I am more inclined to choose answer (a.).
You're right that a is the answer. The owner certainly doesn't have "puppy-dog eyes."
