    7.participle and the phrase is WORKING AFTER SCHOOL

    10.gerund

  • LAL! check my work -

    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.

  • LAL! check my work -

    1. is SHOWED participle

    2. gerund; TO GO

  • LAL! check my work -

    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.
