Given a sentence
Despite the heavy rain, rescue workers continued to work.
Now, I was supposed to transform this sentence into another sentence, which began with
Even, without changing the original sentence's meaning. So, I wrote (
Even during the heavy rain, rescue workers continued to work.
But, my teacher considers this wrong, saying that rescue workers working during the rainfall wasn't implied in the sentence. She says that (
Even though it rained heavily, rescue workers continued to work.
is correct. But, I feel that the original sentence does not imply whether rescue workers worked after or during the rain. Therefore, I feel that the both interpretations should be accepted. Thus, my question is:
- Should both
- Is there a third sentence also which better satisfies the criteria?
