1) He was feeling foolish, as if he were a child playing a game he didn't quite understand.

Is that sentence correct?

Does it mean:
a) He was feeling foolish and he was feeling as if he were a child playing a game he didn't quite understand.
or:
b) As if he were a child playing a game he didn't quite understand, he was feeling foolish.

Are we dealing with a specific way of feeling foolish? He wasn't feeling foolish like a man who had made a big blunder in a chess game, but was feeling foolish like a child who was playing a game he didn't quite understand?


Gratefully,
Navi
