Rate answer


Answer:

'his chubby legs pumping.'

Explanation:

An absolute phrase is a phrase that modifies a noun of a sentence. It is not connected to the sentence by a conjunction but by a comma only, and it does not affect nor change its meaning when it is removed.

In the sentence 'The baby toddled across the room with his first wobbly steps, his chubby legs pumping,' the absolute phrase is 'his chubby legs pumping.' This phrase is placed after a comma and it is perfectly removable because the meaning of the whole sentence would not change. Also, the phrase refers to the noun 'baby' which is the one modified by it.
