  1. These are known as misplaced or dangling modifiers. Ask yourself these questions:

    1. Was the broken glass washing the dishes?

    2. Was the alarm clock startled by the noise?

    3. Was "I" standing on a chair?

    4. Were Sam's friends in plastic bags.

    So -- yes -- your answer of #3 is correct.
