Synonyms of "Went" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between i went under the roof of the hut to avoid the rain. and i went under the roof of the hut to avoid raining. ?
A: Hi!
1. Your first sentence " i went under the roof of the hut to avoid the rain." is good, except you should capitalize the "i" to "I"
2. Your second sentence " i went under the roof of the hut to avoid raining." is incorrect. You should omit "raining" as it cannot be used in that way in the sentence and add "the rain." (And if course capitalize the "i" to "I")
3. I don't think there is any difference between the two sentences because the second one doesn't really much make sense. The correct sentence is 'I went under the roof of the hut to avoid the rain."
I hope this helps!
