sentece tranformation

Post by hanuman_2000 » Thu Dec 15, 2016 10:43 am


1.He aimed to win the prize and worked hard.

The above sentence is a compound sentence and I have to change it into a complex and simple sentence.

A.He worked hard so that he might win the prize. (Complex)

B. Having aimed to win the prize, he worked hard. (Simple)

Are both A & B correct?

Could you please help me about the rules in this context?

Both are grammatical and have the desired meaning, although in B 'Aiming' would be better than 'Having aimed'.
