    Question Satisfy/satisfying

    1. A group consists of elements satisfying the following conditions.
    2. A group consists of elements that satisfy the following conditions.
    Is the meaning of both sentences the same and a choice between them is just a matter of style? If yes, is one of them preferable?

    Best,
    Nyggus
