    Post English Structures

    Choose the correct answer:

    1)______he has continued to work on his thesis.
    a. Even though there are problems
    b. Despite all these problems

    2)_______she burst into tears.
    a. On seeing her father
    b. When seeing her father

    =================
    Personally, I think both of the answers for each sentence is correct.

    Re: English Structures

    Can you explain a little more, esp. the first sentence? Why can't we use the first answer?

    Thanks.
