    about "in his view" and "relate to"

    Hello teacher.
    Can I ask you questions?
    I have two questions.
    Q1.
    Does the following two sentences have exactly the same meanings?
    1-1 Something that is circumstantial is related to a particular circumstance.
    1-2 Something that is circumstantial relates to a particular circumstance.

    Q2.
    What does sentence 2-1 mean? Is sentence A right, or sentence B?
    2-1 He is sincere in his view.
    A) He think himself of being sincere.
    B) His suggestions, opinions, or advices are sincere.

    I agree with Tdol's advice, but I do have a suggestion. Rather than "Does the following two sentences have exactly the same meanings?" say "Do the following two sentences have exactly the same meanings?"
