  1. Your first answer is right; the second is wrong.

  2. For the second one I thought it would be gerund since there is an -ing, though now I look it is a participial phrase correct?

  3. Yes. The phrase is acting as an adjective modifying "committee," so it must be a participial phrase.

  4. So they are both participial ?
