I have to identify the syntax used in these two sentences and explain.
A. After a short vacation in Japan, Mr Chang appeared in my office, fresh and relaxed.
B. After a short vacation in Japan, Mr Chang appeared fresh and relaxed in my office.
So far, I was trying to break down the phrases used in the sentences like this:
In both sentences it can be analysed that it starts off with a prepositional phrase After a short vacation in Japan.
My understanding is prepositional phrase is a group of words made up of a preposition, its object, and any of the object's modifiers.
Then it moves along to the subject of the sentence, Mr Chang.
The word appeared in the sentences is a verb.
Is that correct? Could you please help?
