The placement of two or more essential noun modifiers

by ZimingY929 Wed Feb 14, 2018 10:19 am

The SC Strategy Guide has introduced the rule about the placement of one essential modifer and one nonessential modifer when both of them refer to one noun, which is that the essential one should be placed right next to the noun while the nonessential one can be placed a little further.
However, what should placement be when the tow modiiers, or more than two modifiers, are all essential and all refer to one noun? I suppose there are some rules about that, but unfortunately the book doesn't convey any.
Thx to all people willing to contribute to this issue.

Hello! This folder is only for general strategy questions, not content or specific test problems. Check out the content / problem folders and post in the relevant folder depending upon the source of the material that you want to post (and make sure to follow the rules about banned sources).

Note: All of the content folders are viewable to the public but only our students can post in them.

(And short answer: There aren't any simple rules for what you describe and the GMAT doesn't typically test this; that's why the book doesn't discuss this.)
