    He got dressed. / He put his clothes on. Would they be the same?

    Hi teachers,
    Could 'b', be a good explanation for 'a'?
    a) He got dressed.
    b) He put his clothes on.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. Did you really doubt it?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Not much, I just wanted to be 100% sure.
    To add 'his body' for 'b' will be wrong, won't it?

    It would certainly be redundant!
