    two questions for help, even if a hint

    To those whom would stop for a look, though it is not a funny story, hehe

    "Some people say that it is wrong for the government to spend much money on artistic projects, such as paintings and sculptures in public places."

    i know that "in public places" play an attributive part in this sentence. But which phrase does it modify? "artistic projects" or "paintings and sculptures"?



    here's another question:

    which of the following two is more ok? i mean which is more consistent with teh english way:

    1. As they had finished the assignments, the children went out for fun.

    2. As the children had finished the assignments, they went out for fun.



    thanks

    1 paintings and scultptures
    2 They're both OK, though the first sounds more more natural to me.
