Which of these sentences (if not both) is correct?
"I wanted to find on time the apple in the tree."
"I wanted to find, on time, the apple in the tree."
The second sentence is logically correct. The first sentence makes "time" seem like a sofa or bed, on which you are finding something. The second sentence distinguishes this from the rest of the sentence precisely.
