i wonder which sentence below is correct:
they kept trying when they knew it was hopeless.
they kept trying till they knew it was hopeless.
could i get help from native speakers?
thanks a million
If they kept trying when it was useless, they kept on trying even though it was useless.

Buggles (Native speaker, but not a teacher).
The correct sentence is - They kept trying TILL they knew it was hopeless.
As indicated above by Buggles - that will depend on the context of the sentence.
