    Smile the meaning of the sentence

    Hello

    Would you help me to understand this sentence?
    #1 Scolded by her father, Yuki got angry and went out of the room.

    Which meaning is appropriate?

    #2 Because Yuki was scolded by her father she got angry and went out of the room.
    #3 When Yuki was scolded by her father she got angry and went out of the room.

    Does #1 have another meaning? Or can #1 be read in many ways in some contexts?

    Thank you.

    Re: the meaning of the sentence

    Both can be used.

    This simply means: Yuki to angry when her father scolded her and so she left the room.

    #2 Because Yuki was scolded by her father she got angry and went out of the room.-- this sentence answers the question "why did Yuki leave the room?"

    #3 When Yuki was scolded by her father she got angry and went out of the room.-- This sentence answers the question-- When did YUki leave the room?

    Hope this clarifies.
