"I will make you happy with this present."


"I will make you happy with this present."



Do you think that 'with this present' modifies (be) 'happy' or 'will make you happy'? I think either one is okay and there is not a meaning difference. What do you experts think? Please help me out again with your wisdom.


I wish this one would be the last question about English :)

Try moving the prepositional phrase. With this present, I will .... As you can see here, the prepositional phrase is being used as an adverb that modifies "will make."
