  2. The sentence for the second one should be, "I was in a hurry so I ate 'a cold bowl of cereal' as I was walking out the door. I don't know if that change makes a real difference, if it does.

    But wouldn't it be a misplaced modifier, since it appears like the person ate a cold bowl as he walked out? I thought it should be "a bowl of cold cereal".

  3. That's the only thing that makes sense, I guess. The other choices are certainly incorrect!!
