hmm i don't think so.. this one is kinda tricky..I think 'flew by' is the verb phrase, so it shouldn't be the participial phrase..
Durply
  • Durply
A participle is a form of a verb that is used in a sentence to modify a noun, noun phrase, verb or verb phrase, and thus plays a role similar to that of an adjective or adverb

C?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes :) participial phrase is "hanging next to the gray sweater" which should be in the middle of commas to get separated from the main sentence.

Durply

it makes a sentence so it doesnt need the commas
anonymous
  • anonymous
why? please explain, I learned that those kind of phrases should be in between the commas ;-;
Durply
  • Durply
the dress hanging is the new one
Durply
  • Durply
it still works without the participle phrase
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah now I remember about restrictive vs non-restrictive clauses..so if it still works without the participial phrase, the sentence should use commas
anonymous
  • anonymous
but if the sentence can't stand without that phrase, it's okay not use commas
Durply
  • Durply
ya
anonymous
  • anonymous
The dress is the new one.. now the sentence seems incomplete.. You should say "It \(\sf doesn't\) work without the participial phrase" lol xD
Durply
  • Durply
read B its not a run-on so and hes talking to someone so its not in his head or anything he is speaking directly to the person
Durply
  • Durply
and ya it doesnt work without the phrase
anonymous
  • anonymous
