    yes, that will be right. Verb is the action word in the sentence. missing and frightening are used as an adjective here, and storm is a noun :) good job!

    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..

    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

    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.

    yeah now I remember about restrictive vs non-restrictive clauses..so if it still works without the participial phrase, the sentence should use commas
