Gideon sent for troops to chase and destroy the army.
I once shot an elephant in my pajamas.
What is your question?
Sir, you have written as though an elephant was wearing a pajamas. I didn't get you.
I think it was for Susan to state about missing the question.
Sanjay, that is an example of a famous squinting modifier (from Groucho Marx). "In my pajamas" is the modifier, and you have to "squint" to determine who is wearing them. As it stands the sentence's real meaning can not be determined. Without further clarification on the writer's part you do not know for sure.
Thank you, sir.
