    Sentence correction

    There are 2 sentences...
    1) with adjustments for inflation, the relative cost of welfare benifits has been dropping since 1973 , resulting in the welfare program now costing about 3 bn dollars less to implement than it did in 1973.
    2) with adjustments for inflation, the relative cost of welfare benifits has been dropping since 1973 , and as a result the welfare program now costs about 3 bn dollars less to implement than it did in 1973.
    which of the 2 is grammatically correct
    When do u we use "resulting ...." clause?

    Re: Sentence correction

    Hi there,

    Both those sentences are fine. The first one is perhaps more elegant.

    It's benefits though, not benifits.

    Kind regards
