    end up being part of an unending cycle of stress and depression

    While Kumar was saved, several others working in the lucrative software industry end up being part of an unending cycle of stress and depression

    Could above sentence rephrased as,
    " While Kumar was saved, several others who work in the lucrative software industry end up by being part of an unending cycle of stress and depression" ?

    Hello ,

    Does using "..others who work..." instead of "...others working.." change the emphasize somehow? Or are the both sentences completely the same?

    Thanks for your answers in advance.

    That does not change the meaning.

    Does adding "by" change the meaning?
    Thanks

    No, it is simply incorrect. It doesn't belong there.
