#### SC- coordinate illustrations

Sat Jul 30, 2016 10:39 pm
Hi instructors,

Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her
narratives, capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.
(A) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives,
(B) In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations
(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and

IMO, (A) and (B), comma + -ing, does this modifier modify the preceding clause? I read some thread said "comma+-ing" modifier modifies illustration is illogical, so eliminate, I don't think so.
I have an example,
Coming home from school, I was blown off my bike by the wind

so , for this SC, I think " coordinating" modifies BP,
(D), -ed modifier as initial modifier, any -ed modifier modifies the immediately noun?
(E)I don't know whats wrong.

thanks a lot
have a nice day

[A]"carefully coordinating them with her" and "in her book illustrations" can both modify Beatrix Potter (BP) therefore [A] is ambiguous ----wrong
[B]"carefully coordinating them with her narratives" modifies the preceding noun book illustrations---wrong
[C]this sentence clearly shows who did the coordinating (removes error of [B])---correct
[D]"Carefully coordinated with her narratives" modifies Beatrix Potter ----wrong
[E]this sentence is awkward

why ambiguous if both modify?

obviously, -ING modifies the latter cause.

I think I did not describe very clear..
I can understand how to approach this question,
but I am confused the following question about what will be modified by "-ING modifier"
IMO, comma + -ing, does this modifier modify the preceding clause?
I have an example,
Coming home from school, I was blown off my bike by the wind
obviously, -ING modifies the latter cause.

and another question is :

why ambiguous if both modify?

thanks a lot
