Flashcard 1 Sentence Structure Flashcard Set for the English Basics



The correct answer is:

As she cleaned her room, Annika put all of the clothes that she had worn in the hamper.


Adjectives and adverbs want to be right next to the word or words they modify so that there is no confusion on the part of the reader. As it is originally written, this sentence sounds like Annika has a habit of wearing her hamper, which is probably not accurate. Instead, the modifier should go right after her clothes.
