    Not being rich/ Not rich he finished his education.

    1. Not being rich he finished his education.

    2. Not rich he finished his education.


    Does sentence 2 sound okay?

    #1 doesn't make a lot of sense either.

    I agree- #1 needs more information to work. It implies that rich people don't finish their education, which doesn't make much sense.

    I agree. It is likely that the reverse was intended. "Not being rich, he was still able to finish his education."

    Re: Not being rich/ Not rich he finished his education.

    How about, "Not being rich, he was unable to complete his course of studies"?
