well i know that a gerund ends in "ing" but so does a participle under circumstances
anonymous

first of all, what is underlined?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oops sorry... its "panting"
anonymous

i would say a but not 100% sure

okay, so we know the most participle phrases end in -ing, and past participles end with -ed, and in some cases -en.

do you know what gerund is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no..
anonymous

basically it is a noun made from a verb adding -ing. For example: the gerund form of "read" is "reading".

oh ok so -panting- would be a gerund?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you got it :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
so its c?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes.
anonymous
  • anonymous
but why isn't it a participle?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It can only be gerund because it was a verb, now it is a noun.
anonymous
  • anonymous
well, sort of, but it isn't participle.
