Sure teacher. Thanks for your advice.Don't overcomplicate things, nininaz. It means they arrive with gifts. They brought gifts with them.
so the use of 'while or when' is incorrect?The -ing form shows that when they arrived, they had gifts with them. The arriving and the bearing happened at the same time.
so the use of 'while or when' is incorrect?
Yes teacher, so many thanks.Can you see now why the -ing form is used in the original?
