    That is impossible to answer because neither of them is a full sentence. We need the full sentence and the context in order to work it out.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    1) 'He becomes known widely'
    2)'He is known widely'
    Thanks.
    Each has a different meaning. In 1) As he advances/progresses in life or his profession etc., "he becomes known" but not yet in some areas/places etc. In 2) he is already known.
