Q1: Does #1 mean #2 or #3?
Q2: What does "Mom smiles and says" mean, #5 or #6?
5. Mom smiles, and then she says, "Good job ....."
6. Mom smiles and says at the same time, "Good job....."

  1. Writeacher

    #1 could be addressed to anyone reading the sentences.

    #2 implies that you (the writer) is part of the family with Mom and Hojin.

    #3 and #4 are a bit off, but might mean the same as #1. The issue I see about these two is whether Mom and Hojin live in the same home or not. That is, is Mom's way home the same as Hojin's way home, or are do they live in different homes?

    Q2 -- #5 implies that she smiles first and then starts talking (maybe without smiling, but that's not clear), while #6 means that she is smiling and talking at the same time.
