    Do the pounds have a sprained wrist??

    Or does the female have the sprained wrist?

    Watch out for misplaced modifiers!

    Got it so it should be B Thanks:)

    B is also weird. Is it the wrist that weighs 100 pounds?? :-/

    Oops! I didn't catch that.

    The question is flawed.

  • Grammar - , Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 5:52pm

    It's definitely a bad question!!

    This would be better.

    The patient, a 13-year-old female weighing 100 pounds, has a sprained wrist.
