Is this homework?I think the last question is unnecessarily redundant.
1-1. Though I am a woman, I shall be of help in time of need.
1-2. Being a woman, I shall be of help in time of need.
1-3. A woman, I shall be of help in time of need.
All three are grammatical. The first one means something different than the other two. The third is okay, but "As a woman...." would be better.
The rule of making participle clauses, can 1-3 make sense?
But I haven't much seen a sentence like 1-3 before.
And there is another question.
2-1. Because there was too much traffic, I used the subway.
2-2. There being too much traffic, I used the subway. [Correct but awkward.]
2-3. There was too much traffic, so I used the subway.
Does 2-3 make sense? [No.] Can 'being' be omitted from 2-3? [Yes. See my changes.]
Thanks in advance.
