    A. Prepositional Phrase
    B. Gerund Phrase
    C. Participial Phrase
    D. Appositive Phrase

    My answer is A. Am not sure if it's right or not.

    Verbals that end in -ing are either gerunds or present participles. In this case, it's a gerund phrase that is serving as the subject of the whole sentence; the main verb is "is."
