I have a question regarding the following two sentences:
A: Please write using a black pen when providing further information under this section.
B: Please review the document using the latest version of the software XXX.
Are the two sentences grammatically correct?
Based on my linguistic knowledge, I would say the sentences are awkward.
I would say that the sentences should be corrected as follows:
1. Please write with a black pen when ...
2. Please write by using a black pen when ...
1. Please review the document with the ...
2. Please review the document by using the ...
In sum, what I confused about is the structure "S+V using" because someone said that there is nothing wrong with the two sentences.
I just feel like they are grammatically erroneous.
Besides, for me, the sentences do not look like sentences that are transformed into participial constructions.
Hopefully, someone could help me out with this question.
If sentences A and B are grammatically correct, please explain to me why the two sentences are correct syntactically/linguistically.
Thank you very much for your help!
