1.isit participle because destroyed describes houses
7.participle and the phrase is WORKING AFTER SCHOOL
the phrase is swimming

1 and 2 are now right.
5. The verb in this sentence: IS PLAYING. There is no participial, gerund or infinitive phrase in this sentence.
7. You've identified the phrase, but it's a gerund since it's the direct object of "enjoy."
20. It is a gerund -- but the whole phrase is SWIMMING IN A POOL RATHER THAN IN THE OCEAN.

1. is SHOWED participle
2. gerund; TO GO
LAL! check my work - Ms. Sue, Wednesday, May 26, 2010 at 7:44pm
1. No. SHOWED is the past tense of the verb in this sentence.
2. Huh? I already told you that you identified TO GO correctly as an infinitive.
