    Exclamation Difference(grammer)

    hello,

    i'd like to ask you about the difference between the sentences below...

    they take over an areas by pushing out the native species.

    they take over an areas , pushing out the native species.

    are these two sentences the same or not?
    and why?

    thank you..

    "they take over an areas by pushing out the native species."

    The first thing is that you only need the singular form for 'areas'. This sentence explains the method that 'they' use to take over an area.

    "they take over an areas , pushing out the native species."

    This sentence explains that "pushing out the native species" is because the area has been taken over.

    I hope this helps.

    Yes of course, sorry if my answer was not clear.

    they take over an area , pushing out the native species.

    The "pushing out of the native species is not the method used to take over the area. It is a result of the area being overtaken.

    I hope this helps.
