    What are the differences of the ‘resulted’, ‘resulting’ and ‘results’?
    In which context they should be used?
    Give me more examples.

    Are these sentences correct?
    The fire resulted a loss of lives.
    The fire resulting a loss of lives.
    The fire results in a loss of lives.

    The fire resulting a loss of lives. Incomplete sentence -
    The fire results in a loss of lives. Statement in the present, usable within a narrative.

    why use 'resulting' not ' result in' in this sentence.
    Give more more examples of using ' resulting' or others similar meanings.

    Hi again, tomolonight!
    As for your question 'why use 'resulting' not 'result in' in the sentence;
    'The strong wind was terrifying, resulting in many trees blowing over.'

    I think it is called 'participial construction' in English. I'd advise you to learn more about it. Well...to put it very simply(well, the thing is...it's not that simple...), you omit 'conjunctions' and use 'participles' in the 'participial construction'. So...for example,

    If you turn to the left, you can find the post office on your left.
    Turning to the left, you can find the post office...- 'participial construction', 'if you' omitted

    The strong wind was terrifying, and it resulted in many trees blowing over.
    The strong wind was terrifying, resulting in many trees.... - 'participial construction', 'and it' omitted


    Oh...it's so hard to explain it in English...
    I hope you can understand what I'm trying to say.

    I'm not a native speaker of English.
    Please wait for native speakers to respond.

    Hi, again!

    What do you mean by...'these two words'?
    Do you mean...'result in'...or 'participial construction'?

    What 'participial construction' and
    When it should be used?

    The two words 'resulting' and 'result' have difference meanings in the sentence?

    Hi, tomoronight!

    What 'participial construction' and
    When it should be used?

    Well...I'm afraid it's a tough question for me...
    Please ask native speakers for help.
    Could anybody(native speakers)...help us here?

    The two words 'resulting' and 'result' have difference meanings in the sentence?

    I don't think there's a difference in meaning. It is the form(-ing) that is different.(I'm sorry if I'm wrong...)

    1. The fire resulted a loss of lives.
    Collocation
    The fire resulted in a loss of lives.
    2. The fire resulting a loss of lives.
    You need a verb; resulting is not a verb. It's a participle.

    Participial phrase
    The fire resulting in a loss of lives caused a great deal of hardship and damage.

    Verb
    The fire is resulting in a loss of lives.
    3. The fire results in a loss of lives.

    [QUOTE=Soup;337976]1. The fire resulted a loss of lives.
    Collocation
    The fire resulted in a loss of lives.

    What is the difference in these sentences:
    1) The fire resulted (in) a loss of lives. (Is it neccessary to put 'in')?
    The fire caused a loss of lives. (caused / caused in)?

    Give me more examples and explanations.
