Oh, could you also make sure on these too, please. Is there a participle phrase?

1. The participating colleges each had a desk at the convention. Participating
2. Defeated teams should not make excuses for their losses. Defeated


Thank you so much you have been an extreme help.

#9 = correct! Congrats!!

#1. Participating is a participle, but there's no participial phrase; the participle is modifying colleges.

#2. Again, it's a participle, but there's no phrase; it's modifying teams.
