If you change the number, repeat the noun.
-2-

Adjectives vs. adverbs:
␣ An adjective modifies only nouns or pronouns ␣ An adverb modifies almost anything but a noun or pronoun ␣ Linking verbs such as to be or to feel are followed by an adjective, rather than an adverb Examples: Amy is feeling good (good is an adjective that modifies the noun Amy) Amy is feeling well (well is an adverb that modifies the noun Amy)
Modifiers:
␣ A modifier describes or modifies someone or something in the sentence Example: Tired from playing basketball, Charles decided to take a nap. (underlined part is the modifier
of Charles)
␣ A noun and its modifier should touch each other (i.e. stand next to each other)
Example:
Wrong: Jim biked along an old dirt road to get to his house, which cut through the woods.
Correct: To get to his house, Jim biked along an old dirt road, which cut through the woods.
␣ Noun we want to modify is not even in the sentence => dangling modifier
Example:
Wrong: Resigned to the bad news, there was no commotion in the office.
Right: Resigned to the bad news, the office workers made no commotion.
␣ Unlike a noun modifier, a verb modifier does not have to touch the subject (see further below for cases where the noun modifier does not have to the noun)
␣ Use which to modify things and who to modify people Example: Wrong: The scientists that made the discovery were rewarded. Right: The scientists who made the discovery were rewarded.
␣ Use the pronoun where to modify a noun place, such as area, site country, etc; use the pronoun in which to modify a metaphorical place such as condition, situation, case, circumstances or arrangements.
Example: Wrong: We had an arrangement where he cooked and I cleaned. Right: We had an arrangement in which he cooked and I cleaned.
