Hi Mayank5353,

I often advise students to keep sentences simple, so in this case, the first sentence you've shared here is correct. Your second sentence, while it would technically be fine if you separated the phrase "as well as Mary" with commas, sounds a bit awkward. The third and fourth sentences can be rewritten far simply by saying, "The mother is going with her children."

To practice sentence construction on your own, here's a great resource that will walk you through some concepts and help you simplify sentences and make them far more impactful: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/exercises/5/

Best,
Rich
