I have the following sentence:

Laravel framework gives you something and in return takes something else. It gives you the ease and the simplicity while takes you the performance.

Firstly, is the whole sentence grammatically correct as it is now?
Secondly, which one of them is the correct, and why?

  • takes from you
  • taking from you
  • takes you

1 Answer 1


"Takes from you" would be the correct choice as it stands, though that sounds a bit non-idiomatic to me. I think a better way to phrase this might be something like:

Compared with other PHP frameworks, Laravel offers ease and simplicity of use at the expense of a reduction in performance.

  • Thank you. Is your native language is English?
