1. The restoration appear to be excellent, as do the position of the hooks.
2. A dressing of Benzoin, Xeroform, dressing sponges, foam tape with Reston foam, and Steri-Strips were applied.
Answer: A. was applied?
1 is b. Do you see them -- 2 subj-verb agr errors here.
1. restoration = subject
should it be
The restoration appears to be excellent,
I would write the sentence as follows:
The restoration as well as the position of the hooks appears to be excellent.
Which probably broke more rules!
I am sure I am missing punctuation!
No, your rewritten sentence improves the original! Congratulations!!
The patient was placed in the wheelchair with the fractured tibia.
"The patient was placed in the wheelchair with the fractured tibia." This is a modifier error. A modifier is a phrase that modifies part of the sentence - in this case, the modifier is "with the fractured tibia". When a modifier is placed incorrectly, it changes the meaning of the sentence. Last I checked, wheelchairs don't have tibias to fracture, therefore, this is a modifier error.
