What does it mean 'modifier"
Is the sentence a passive one? I mean for the dog?
Thanks

Hi,

'Modifier' is a word that qualifies or describes a noun - it can be an adjective or adverb or a word that performs the same job . 'Hidden' used here is not passive but simply describes that the dog is not visible/is out of sight.
