i want to analyse the following sentence
As i want to attend an interview in Mumbai i reserved the ticket so that i could travel comfortably
I think it is either I reserved the ticket so that i could travel comfortably.,
As I wanted to travel there, I reserved a ticket.
I want to attend an interview in Mumbai, so I reserved the ticket so that I could travel comfortably.
Illogical. The original sentence may sound good English, but it is illogical. The sentence is introduced by an adverbial sub-clause that provides the reason for the reservation of the ticket. The main clause follows and then comes another reason clause that explains a different motive behind the reservation. Why 're-explain'? If there is more than one reason, I would include them conjoined in the same subordinate clause like this:
As I want to attend an interview in Mumbai and travel there comfortably, I have reserved a ticket.
