    4 and 7 are correct.

  • language arts -

    Participles are verb forms. They are a verb's 3rd and 4th principal parts.

    Examples, listing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th principal parts:

    walk - walked - walking - walked

    speak - spoke - speaking - spoken

    teach - taught - teaching - taught

    drive - drove - driving - driven

    go - went - going - gone

    do - did - doing - done

    Scroll down to Four Verb Forms to see additional examples.

    Now go back into those sentences and find 1) verb forms that fit either the 3rd or 4th principal part's pattern and 2) are not the main verb of the sentence.
