What are the difference between these sentences?

1. If you put this jacket on, you can long-jump.

2. If you put this jacket on, you will be able to long jump. (Both are correct? and usable?)

3. Criticism brings people down into a river of hatred. One's struggling raise him up.

4. Criticism brings people down into a river of hatred. But their struggling raise them up.

5. Criticism brings people down into a river of hatred. People's struggling raise them up.

Which ones are correct and better?

The second sentence is a statement.

    The first two are fine, but one might also try: Wearing this jacket will enable you to long jump. The other three could use work, such as: Criticism immerses people into a river of hatred, but struggling enables them to escape. There are minor problems with each of 3-5, but the alternative suggested eliminates all of them.

    1 and 2 are dangling modifiers so they are both sh!t. They will be permitted to, or will have ability to long jump? Make that clear. The other sentences are sh!t as well, the second sentence need an additional verb like "can" or "should" or "will" or ....... whatever
