Result in or resulting in?

Beitrag von Kaisoo »

Hi All,
I have a sentence here:
With all people interacting face to face, they will get instant response from each other, 'resulting in' more effective communication.
Can I use 'results in' instead of 'resulting in'? What is the difference?
Thanks

Hi Kaisoo and welcome to the forum!  :)

No, you can't, at least not without changing the sentence structure.
The above sentence uses a  present participle in order to avoid a relative clause. The result is a so-called reduced relative clause.

If you wanted to use a relative clause, it would probably have to be something like this:
... which would lead to/result in  / leads to/results in  more effective communication.

Have a nice week!
