    This is relatively advanced stuff that would trouble many native English speakers.

    C is the correct answer.

    The problem with A is that it suggests that your eyes are walking down the street. (Eyes is the noun, not "my" or "me") - As I walked down the street, my eyes were drawn...

    B suggests that the woman has tinted windows. - A small red car with tinted windows pulled up behind....

    D is similar, suggesting that the yard has yellow beaks.

    It appears that C is correct. B and D both describe things in the wrong part of the sentence. B implies that the woman had tinted windows and D implies that the yard had yellow beaks. Neither of which make sense. A is wrong in my opinion because your eyes don't walk. It should say something like "As I walked down the street, my eyes..."

    I think B is correct answer........I am not sure......thanks
