    文法上來說,兩個句子都是對的。兩個子句亦是正確的。

    不過,只有第一個句子中的 [successful] 是形容詞。第二個句子中的 [succeeded] 是動詞, 不是形容詞。

    兩個句子的意思並不相同。

    第一句形容他是一個成功的科學家,和指出他發明了一個 time machine。意思是他的成功並不止於這個發明。

    第二句指出他是一個科學家,和指出他成功了一個 time machine 的發明。但無 imply 他有其它成功的地方。

    忘了回答問題。

    如果想第一個句子和第二個句子的意思一樣,就可將形容詞 successful 改為助動詞 successfully 及放在子句內:

    例:

    He was a scientist who succesfully invented a Time Machine

    There are no right or wrong answers to this, I'll illustrate some correct examples, as follows:

    If your sentence begins with

    1. John has done many great things for the society, died at the age of 60, he was a successful scientist who invented "Time machine"> Correct

    2. In the 19th century, scientist from all over the world scrambled to figure out a method to travel back in time, many failed to make it except John, he was the scientist who succeeded with the invention of "Time Machine" > Correct

    Grammatical errors on No.2, Succeeded in inventing > Wrong

    If I have to choose an answer, I would choose No.1

    There are different ways of writing this, let me know if you are not comfortable with the explaination!!!!
