To make best sense, modifiers (words or phrases) need to be as close to what they are modifying as possible.
In A, the modifying clause is "Wishing...else" -- since "he" is the one doing the wishing, this is correct.
Tell me about B, C, and D.
Look for an error in tenses.
C sounds right to me.
D sounds right
I'm stuck between B and A.
B - Who did the listening?
C - What has fine cuisine?
D - Who did the charging?
the French restaurant
The administration criticized itself??
"Charging..." = criticism
Okay then it's D.
Yes. Who did the criticizing?
members of Congress
Yes, and that "Charging..." phrase needs to be close to the word "Congress" not "administration."
Here's another example of putting the modifier in the wrong place -- it's a headline on a TV news station's webpage:
Child burn victim reveals motive in attack on deathbed
He was attacked on his deathbed??
yes that's definitely misplaced. Thanks!
