13.6.14 exercise 14: same subject / different subject
We have already said that the gerundio is infinite, has not a subject itself, it is therefore not clear who is the executor of the action described by the gerundio or, in case of a passive gerundio, the goal of this action. Therefore the gerundio normally shares his subject with the infinite verb. About the exception to this rule we will speak in the next exercise.
Decide in the following sentences if a translation with a gerundio is possible or not and translate the sentences with a gerundio, if possible, or with a subordinate clause, if that is not possible.
