Chapter 2. Modifiers > Reviewing for Results

Reviewing for Results

The following exercises will help you remember CORE CONTROL and how to use modifiers. You are now working with complete sentences, identifying the cores and modifiers, to see how they work together to create a complete picture for your reader. Sentence cores, especially verbs, are emphasized in these exercises because you will have the most control of your writing when you know how to find—and how to control—the core. In addition, your readers will thank you for making their jobs easier.

Exercise for Practice

In the following sentences, find the words that make up the sentence core. Underline the subject(s) with one line, the verb or verb phrase with two lines, and the completer with a broken line, if a completer is present. Note that all verbs in this exercise are active verbs. When you are finished, check your answers at the end of this section.
