Choose the correct sentence
A) The patient is a 13-year-old female weighing 100 pounds who has a sprained wrist.
B) The patient is a 13-year-old female with a sprained wrist weighing 100 pounds.
I answered A
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.
It's definitely a bad question!!
This would be better.
The patient, a 13-year-old female weighing 100 pounds, has a sprained wrist.
