Actually, I am writing a story. I have to explain the poverty of a family. So please let me know which one is the grammatically correct and reasons behind them, in the following two statements.
- There wasn't any question of them being able to buy a better house — or even one more bed to sleep in. They were far too poor for that.
- As they were far poor,they were unable to buy a better house and even one more bed to sleep in.
