Which of the following sentences does NOT contain a dangling modifier?

A.Torn from its moorings, the high wind drove the boat onto the rocks.

B.Imported in the last century, the people on Easter Island outnumber the horses.

C.The Stanleys moved into the house, although it was only half finished.

I'm really not sure which one the answer is, but I'm thinking it may be B, but that is just a guess so please help :)
