            there should be same sense before connecting the two sentences and after connecting the two

            a) in spite of alighting from the train , he fell over on the platform
            is it the same meaning ????

            c) gave up his situation as he was not satisfied with his salary.

            yes network problem since morning 😐

            see the two sentences are relating in what sense ..its like ki jab wo train se utar rha tha he fell over the platform

            so how can we link these with “inspite of” here ???
            the meaning will be something else na ki train se utarne ke bawjood wo platform pe gir gya ………..wrong

            gave up his situation as he was not satisfied with his salary.
            how is this supposed to be correct ?? no subject used here and it is not even a phrase so incorrect.

          9. AMAZON

            train se utarne ki bjaaye wo platform m gir gya ,, i frame this sentence like this.
            okay leave.
            Thank you mam for bearing me 🙂

          10. Ambika

            no no not at all…i am here for this only 😀
            and see it is not correct how can we say train se utarne ke bawjood/bjaye he fell there…its not ki wo train se utara tha taki wo na gire …there is nothing like that so try to understand the sentence …sentence ban jayega no problem with that par meaning kyaa hai ye samjho

            we use in spite of to mean some reason

            like he took a taxi but fir bhi train nhi pakd paya
            inspite of hiring a taxi he couldn’t reach in time
            this is ryt usage .
