I am giving two sentences below. Please get me clear. I am confused.
- Mrs. Jones went to the New York.
- Mr. Smith took up her position. This is the context.
If I join the two sentences above into two sentences using the participle, then which sentence is meaningful or do both of them carry the same meaning? Sentences with participle are as follows:
a) (With) Mrs. Jones going to New york, Mr. Smith took up her position.
b) (With) Mrs. Jones gone to New york, Mr. Smith took up her position.
