Can You Pass This High School Grammar Test? Part 2

Slide 14 of 26: A. Attracting thousands of visitors every year, Disney World is beloved for its incomparable theme park experience.
If you recognized that the example sentence has a misplaced modifier, you're a true grammar aficionado! When you begin a sentence with a present participle of a verb ("attracting," in this example), you need to make sure that the subject of the sentence is what's doing the action the verb describes. As is, the sentence implies that the people are attracting thousands of visitors, not Disney World itself.


So, how did you do ?  No matter how well, or not, just remember that English is quite difficult to master.  Give yourselves credit for trying !
