    Post use of gerund after comma

    Dear teachers,

    Are these grammatically correct?

    Education leads people to a brighter future, allowing them to change other people's lives.
    Too much money can lead one to ruin, revealing the true self behind them.


    Very much appreciated

    Default Re: use of gerund after comma

    The first is fine, but the second doesn't work.

    Incidentally, those -ing forms are functioning as participles, not gerunds.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
