Homework Help: participial phrases

Posted by Sherri on Tuesday, December 13, 2011 at 3:12pm.

Which sentence contains a participial phrase with an embedded clause?

Running, giraffes look like something that was designed in a bad dream.

Running when they heard the gunshots, the giraffes fled to safety.

Tired and hot, they stopped when they found water.

When I first looked at this, I thought the last one.. because of the fact that i thought "tired" was a past participial.. but when I looked at all 3 sentences, they almost all look like participles.. ugh, i'm confused! I'm thinking that it must be the embedded clause that is throwing me off.. help?
