    UberEATS brand essence food delivery at the tap of a button

    I just found the following sentence and I am really puzzled

    "UberEATS’ brand essence ‘food delivery at the tap of a button’ will be nurtured through a series of strategic marketing campaigns launched using the flighting schedule."

    Why can the sentence above add use the -ing verb "using" there rather than "launched in using the flighting schedule?

    I have seen some other sentences using relative clauses but I did not really understand them

    For example, "be + ADJ + V-ing".

    Is this structure correct? Can you give me more examples?

    Re: sentence structure's confusion

    Where did you find that rather odd sentence?
    Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.

    Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: sentence structure's confusion

    "launched in using the flighting schedule" doesn't make sense. To reword the sentence, the marketing campaigns will be launched using the flighting schedule.

    I don't think the structure is "
    be + ADJ + V-ing." "launched" is past participle.

    The sentence is correct. Here are a few more examples.

    1. The product will be made using recycled parts.

    2. The bell was struck, waking up the students.

    Why can the sentence above add verb-ing use the -ing verb "using" there (no question mark here) rather than "launched in using the flighting schedule"?

    sometimes I saw have seen some other sentences they seem like using relative clauses but I didn't really get understand them.

    e.g For example, "be + ADJ + V-ing". ETC

    See my corrections above. It is important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".

    Before we try to make any more sense of it, please answer bhaisahab's question in post #2.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: sentence structure's confusion

    Example: The marketing campaigns will be launched using the flighting schedule.

    I would usually write like: The marketing campaigns will be launched by using the flighting schedule.

    Because I am very confused about the first example which it was using -ing verb.
    So why do we use "using" rather than "to use"?

    Second

    Example: The product will be made using recycled parts.
    What if I say: The product will be made to use recycled parts?

    What is actually different between them.

    Re: sentence structure's confusion

    Read post 4 again. Then click on Edit Post and change post 5 so that it follows the rules I gave you. Until you learn use correct capitalisation and punctuation, there is little point in our helping you with the rest.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: sentence structure's confusion

    This sentence I extracted from the example given by my university.
    I am just wondering how this sentence construct.

    You missed a capitalisation error in post #1 and you haven't made any corrections to post #5.
