a young couple sued their son's teacher because she failed him on a test. The won the case because the teacher had not used proper grammar and the student had answered each question correctly. This prompted me to run a little quiz here.Which of the following sentences is correct? 1. Johnny sat on a fence with huge eyes as he watched some crows harassing a cat with dive-bombing antics. 2. Johnny sat on a fence watching, with huge eyes, some crows with dive-bombing antics harassing a cat 3. With huge eyes, Johnny sat on a fence as he watched some crows harassing a cat with dive-bombing antics.

Very well-thought out reply. You are very good at sentence structure. I agree with you.
Awesome thought process, Stephen - you are very astute in your thinking.
You are correct on sentence structure.. When we look at #1 it is worded in such a way that the fence has huge eyes and the cat has dive-bombing antics. #3 is correct with the huge eyes belonging to Johnny, but the cat still has dive-bombing antics.
I agree, Kevin.
Very good thoughts.
Thank you, Harish. A few people have got it right so far, including you.
You are most welcome.
