  2. How about these ones? This modifiers are really confusing. Do you know of any website that will make them easy to understand?

    1)Rudolph enjoys eating curries from the Indian delicatessen with a lot of spices.

    2) On the phone, the telemarketer persuaded the new homeowners to purchase extended warranties on all their new appliances.

    Thanks a lot

  3. Modifiers should be as close as possible to the word they modify.

    In sentence 1), it's the curries that have a lot of spices, not the delicatessen. It should be worded, "Rudolph enjoys eating curries with a lot of spices."

    The second sentence is o.k.
