(A) Having the right hand and arm being crippled by a sniper’s bullet during the First World War
(B) In spite of his right hand and arm being crippled by a sniper’s bullet during the First World War
(C) Because there had been a sniper’s bullet during the First World War that crippled his right hand and arm

Use of Inspite

by jatros123 » Tue Feb 13, 2007 10:34 pm
Well this is a classic case where Inspite in being used.

I am sure narrowing the options to B and E is not big deal.

now B starts with "Inspite"

using common sense..

Inspite is mostly used to compare to similar actions..Inspite would be correct if

Inspite being crippled in war he continued fighting in war

but

Inspite being crippled in war, he worked with his right hand and Left hand obviously dont fit.

its not really because of "Being" it is because of Inspite I believe.
