I have a sentence improvement question :
For a week last month, the team's 20 players were stranded because the government-issued passport is not up to international standards.
I am confused between these two options:
A) government-issued passports were not up to international standards.
B) the passports issued by the government were not up to international standards.
For me both sentences convey same meaning but my book says option B is better.
How is B better than A ?
