What is the difference between the following two sentences?

1.The private sector is responding as well, sometimes proactive and sometimes concurrent with government mandates.

2.The private sector is responding as well, sometimes proactively and sometimes concurrent with government mandates.

I think both of the above sentences are grammatical.

It's almost a trick question because neither sentence in the question is grammatical.

The verb responding requires modification by adverbs, not adjectives.

The sentence can be simplified like this:

✘ The private sector is responding proactive.
✔ The private sector is responding proactively.

✘ The private sector is responding concurrent.
✔ The private sector is responding concurrently.

There is only a single correct sentence, and it doesn't appear in the question:

The private sector is responding as well, sometimes proactively and sometimes concurrently with government mandates.
