Hello,

Which sentence contains a dangling modifier?

1. When the storm began to abate, we went home.

2. By the light of the moon, I tripped over a rock.

3. The dog that is man's best friend is cat's worst enemy.

I don't see any dangling modifiers in here. Here are some websites with really good explanations so you can check them out. Then below, I'll explain what each sentence is.
