    Hello

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    "Mark walks close to Kelly trying to find a good topic of conversation"

    Thanks

    Yes, but it's not a good sentence. The listener/reader can't tell who is "trying to find a good topic of conversation".

    "Mark walks close to Kelly, while he tries to find a good topic of conversation"

    Is that sentence grammatically correct?

    It's OK. I would have accepted the original with a comma.
