In the sentence,
"The thin (Franciscan,) (understanding) the Dominican smile, (decided) to intervene and stop the argument." (No error),
we were asked to identify the error.
Those that are in the parenthesis were the given choices. I was told that there is no error in sentence; however, i am not convinced. This is because of the words -- "understanding", "decided" and "stop" in the sentence is not coherent in form. Please explain. I'm confused :(
