The spectators leaped to their feet, and they roared approval.
-> The spectators leaped to their feet, roaring approval.

 

 

Can we say "and they roard approval" modifes "leaped" or the sentence in front ?

 

If not, "roaring approval" modifes "leaped" or the sentence in front in the second example or none?

 

 

What do you think? Thank you so much.
