a) "... and while the cockpit appeared small in comparison to most allied fighters, the cockpit appeared well laid out."

b) "... and while small in comparison to most allied fighters, the cockpit appeared well laid out."


Qual desses dois textos lhe parece mais legível ou fácil de compreender? Se nenhum, justifique.

I see nothing wrong with either text. The first conveys the idea that the cockpit has the appearance of being small and is not. The second affirms that the cockpit is in fact  small.

 

So I think it is up to the author to decide what he really wants to convey...

 

 

Is it ok?

 

Bye!
