what is the participal phrase?"The trainer, armed with a whip, entered the cage."

  • english -

    There are two verb forms in this sentence. Do you see them?

    One is the main verb of the sentence (subject is "trainer" so what did the trainer do?), and the other is the participle.

    The participle and the words that go directly with it make up the participial phrase.

    Let me know what you think.
