Could anyone please explain me, why the writer didn't write like this way? Do both versions have the same meaning?

▪ India has seen several unique masks, some 𝗮𝗿𝗲 adorned with silver and gold threads and some 𝗮𝗿𝗲 even studded with diamonds.

Hi, Toaha,

It would be incorrect to say:

@Toaha posted:

▪ India has seen several unique masks, some 𝗮𝗿𝗲 adorned with silver and gold threads and some 𝗮𝗿𝗲 even studded with diamonds.

because that would be a run-on, or comma-splice sentence, a mistake that occurs when two complete sentences are merely joined by a comma, without a conjunction.

The original sentence is correct because it contains an absolute clause, which can modify the main clause:

▪ India has seen several unique masks, some (being) adorned with silver and gold threads and some (being) even studded with diamonds.

Can I write this sentence "Koala bears are not actually bears, they are marsupials." like this way? "Because Koala bears are not actually bears, they are marsupials"

Toaha, you can say "like this," or "this way." Like this way is not correct.

Instead of a comma, I'd use an em dash, particularly helpful to introduce conclusions: Koala bears are not actually bears â€” they are marsupials.
