Determiners are words like 'a', 'the', 'that' etc., which are used before nouns to show whether you are talking about something specific or of a certain type.

 

You are missing a determiner, 'a', before the word 'case'.

 

'This is a case of particular. . .'

 

There are a number of rules governing the use of determiners.  If you need an explanation of any one, like 'a/an', I would be happy to explain, but to explain them all here would be a feat.

 

Modifiers are words or phrases that add information to a noun, verb or other element of a sentence.  Examples of modifiers include adjectives and adverbs as well as phrases/clauses acting as adjectives or adverbs.
