Hi,

I needed some help in understanding how 'when' is used in GMAT SCs.

Are there any specific rules for its usage ?

For e.g. One legacy of Madison Avenue’s recent campaign to appeal to people fifty years old and over is the realization that as a person ages, their concerns change as well.

(1) to realize that when people age, their
(2) the realization that as people age, their

I understand there may be other errors also present in the example but quoted it to understand the usage of 'when'.

Thanks for the help..
If you have any questions

When in the context of #1 implies an immediate change, whereas "as people age" implies a contuity that is more in line with the gradual process of aging.
