10th grade English question: In the sentence: The boys playing football look tired, what would the Participle
Modifier, and Object of the participle be? I have been trying to figure it out on my own but I'm not sure if my answers are right. What I came up with was: participle-playing, modifier-football, and object of the participle-boys? help!

  • English -

    You have the participle right -- playing.

    The object of the participle tells what they are playing -- football.

    This participle does not have a modifier.
