Does this "to put on his brakes and lessen" denote a result or description for "in time"?
ex)Jeff could hardly wait to show his birthday present, a new bike, to his friends. He tore out of the driveway - right into the path of an oncoming car. Luckily, the driver saw Jeff in time to put on his brakes and lessen the impact of the blow. But the boy was badly cut and bruised...
No, I mean the relationship between "saw" and "put on", which is the cause and result?
ex)the driver saw Jeff in time to put on his brakes and lessen the impact of the blow
Seeing Jeff was the cause of the driver putting his brakes on.
Putting the brakes on was the cause of the impact being lessened.
Overall, seeing Jeff in time was the cause of the impact being lessened.
The impact being lessened was the result of the brakes being put on which was the result of the driver seeing Jeff in time.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
Do you think somehow that applying an automobile's brakes helps people see better?
