  1. I think the answer is the second sentance: Barking is a gerund describing the dog.

    I had to look up what gerund meant first though.

  2. But a gerund does not describe, or so I thought. It acts as a noun. Thank you though!

  3. Please Help is correct. Morgan, gerunds are only nouns.

    If you think that there is a time when ANYONE'S feelings need to be hurt then you are very wrong on that one because everyone deserves kindness even when they make mistakes.
