    Re: Please correct the following sentence

    Thank you for your clarification.

    However, I have a doubt that what is the meaning or difference between the following sentences. Please clarify me.

    1) 'The power project is being set up by a private developer.'
    2) 'The power project being set up by a private developer will benefit half the state.'

    In the 2nd sentence, it might have been 'of the state' instead of 'half the state'.

    Re: Please correct the following sentence

    The difference is that #2 gives more information: it will benefit half the state.

    I have added two words to Sentence 2 above in red. Does that help you to understand it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
