    regardless of being badly hurt

    The man bent down and gave his wife the flower, telling her who it was from. ______ being badly hurt, the old lady looked up at Tenyson with love in her eyes and gave him a little smile.


    A. Out of B. Regardless of C. Thanks to D. As to



    The given answer is B. But this passage has been written. In the original text, the second sentence begins with 'Though badly hurt,'. I'd like to know if 'Regardless of being badly hurt' is rightly used in this context. (regardless of = without worrying about or taking account of')

    Re: regardless of being badly hurt

    Yes, B is the only possible answer. The meaning is similar to the original - "Even though she was badly hurt ..."
    Do you mean the passage has been rewritten?

    Re: regardless of being badly hurt

    Thanks a lot, Raymott. Your help is always great.

    In another test paper, the sentence in this text, I found, began with 'Though badly hurt', which to me read better. So I thought it was rewritten.
