  32. To answer your question "i am a furry", the question is asking how the italicized phrase "each week" changes the meaning of the sentence. The two sentences containing the phrase are "To reach her goal of buying a new bike, Marsha will need to save $10 each week. " and "To reach her goal of buying a new bike each week, Marsha will need to save $10. ". Basically they want to know how a reader would interpret the sentence based on where the "each week" is.
