1. Meeting her, I will be very glad.
2. When I meet her, I will be very glad.
3. If I meet her, I will be very glad.
4. As I meet her, I will be very glad.
5. As I will meet her, I will be very glad.

(Are they all the same? Which one is correct, #4 or #5?)

  1. Ms. Sue

    1. is wrong, because "Meeting her" implies past action.

    2. and 3. are good

    4. and 5. are not usually considered standard English.
