Homework Help: Honor's English

Posted by Ben on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 5:11pm.

Which of the following describes the underlined phrase in the sentence below?

The local softball team won the championship (against all odds).

A) prepositional
B) participial
C) gerund
D) infinitive

Process of elimination:
It cannot be C since a gerund needs to have -ing at the end.

It cannot be D since infinitive are mostly used as non-finite verbs.

It cannot be participles since it does not have -ed -en -d -n -ne.

So I say:
A) prepositional

Can anyone check? Thanks :-).
