Student or Learner
I would like to know the meaning of "helping" in the next sentence.
Jogging is known to boost the metabolism, helping you burn calories at a faster rate.
1. "helping" means "and jogging helps"
2. "helping" means "and jogging is known to help"
1 and 2 are the same. If jogging helps you burn calories, it is ipso facto known to do so.
I am not a teacher.
