15.2.3.4 Present participle as a causal clause


  Example
English: Having read* the book he could answer to all the questions.
  French: Ayant lu le livre, il pouvait répondre à toutes les questions.
  Alternative: Puisqu' il avait lu le livre, il pouvait répondre à toutes les questions.

* actually you can see here that the participle can also be used in other tenses, here as part of the present perfect.
