    believing that happiness is the thrill of buying a new pair of shoes or the latest hi

    Hello all,

    I have two questions regarding following context.

    1) Can we start the italic sentence like "If you go into any..."?

    2) Is ",believing" equivalent with ",this believes that.."?


    "Defining happiness is not as simple as it might seem. Go into any mall these days and you will find many people shopping at a frantic pace, believing that happiness is the thrill of buying a new pair of shoes or the latest high-tech device.

    1 Yes
    2 No- it means that the people shopping believe that happiness is the thrill.... You could change it to who believe that.
