Question and answer
Q: Rewrite the sentence to eliminate ambiguous, remote, or broad reference. We drove to the doctor's office only to find out that they were closed for the day.
A: That sentence really is fine the way it is. It's not ambiguous. The only change I'd make is to eliminate the word "that," because it's unnecessary in this case.
