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

  • Grammar -

    Do the pounds have a sprained wrist??

    Or does the female have the sprained wrist?

    Watch out for misplaced modifiers!

  • Grammar -

    Got it so it should be B Thanks:)

  • Grammar -

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

  • Grammar -

    Oops! I didn't catch that.

    The question is flawed.

  • Grammar -

    It's definitely a bad question!!

  • Grammar -

    This would be better.

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