Q1.

Upon arriving at Mary's apartment.....(preposition 'at' is correct.)

Upon arriving of Mary's apartment.....(preposition 'of' is wrong.) It would mean Mary's apartment arriving at where John is.

Q2.

Both answers are not correct.

The princess is marrying the prince 'who happens to be brave' and not because he is brave.

A possible answer - The princess decided to marry the brave prince.

In this case, both sentences are acceptable. (even though it did not reflect the meaning of the original statement. :silly: )
