    The boldfaced words are "Shrieking from in the tenth row". Sorry, I haven't mentioned that earlier.

  • Language arts -

    No. The modified word is a noun, not a pronoun.

  • Language arts -

    Oh.

  • Language arts -

    Who is shrieking?

    Hint, modifiers are usually as close as possible to the words they modify.

  • Language arts -

    Oh! I see, the girls. Now I am starting to understand. :)

  • Language arts -

    But, I'm still debating between c and d. Aren't the girls the fans?

  • Language arts -

    Yes, the phrase modifies girls; it's the closest noun. The girls are the fans. Grammatically, fans is the predicate nominative.
