    A shooter /help
    Message from hasib1234 posted on 20-05-2020 at 20:34:56 (D | E | F)
    Hello,
    Can you help me please?
    Thanks for any reply.

    You entered a room of 34 people. A shooter then enters killing 30. How many people are left in the room?
    What does "A shooter then enters killing 30" mean ? Doesn't it mean that the shooter first of all killed 30 people and then entered that room?

    Hello hasib1234
    First he entered the room, then he killed 30 people.

    Then I think it should be like this: The soother shooter then enters and kills 30.

    Hello
    Maybe a comma is missing.
    A shooter then enters, killing 30.
    It is not expressed very naturally, it sounds like a headline, telegraphic style.

    Then, I think I am right, aren't I?

    What do you think that sentence should be?
