Question:

Some say that buying today is harder than finding the love of your life a house.
Which of the following phrases is misplaced in the sentence above?

A a house
explanation

The original sentence is incorrect because the verb "buying" requires an object. What is harder than finding the love of your life today is buying a house. Said house appears in the sentence, but it is misplaced, implying that you intend to find the love of your life a house. The sentence should read: "Some say that buying a house today is harder than finding the love of your life."
