I found this structure while reading. Can anyone tell me what it is called?
Aware of the situation, he answered the phone, and knowing what he has, he decided to enter the competition.
Also, is the same structure being used in the sentence below? I found the use of the word "willing" a little weird.
He, willing to help his parents, paid a large sum of money
(I created both of the above examples since I couldn’t remember the original sentences I’d read.)
EDIT: I just found out the structure is known as a Reduced Relative Clause. However, it would still be great if someone could tell me whether or not my example sentences sound weird or not.
