    do the trick

    1. I don't know what it was that did the trick, but I am definitely feeling much better.
    2. I don't know what did the trick, but I am definitely feeling much better.

    The 1st sentence I found at online dictionary, and the 2nd I created by myslef. My question - is the second sentence correct? If "yes" am I right they don't mean excatly the same?

    Re: do the trick

    I see no significant difference in meaning. I like your version better because it conveys the same idea more economically.
    I am not a teacher.
