Which words in the sentence make up the entire participial phrase? A flock of ducks flew by, forming the letter V in the sky. A. A flock of ducks flew by B. flock of ducks C. forming the letter V D. forming the letter V in the sky
no its A
not be XP
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
action is flew by and noun is flock of ducks?
NOPE 100% its D
which part of the sentence describes how the flock of ducks are flying?
yes, that is what I'm thinking

Which sentence uses punctuation correctly? A. The dress, hanging next to the gray sweater is the new one. B. The dress hanging next to the gray sweater is the new one. C. The dress, hanging next to the gray sweater, is the new one. D. The dress hanging next to the gray sweater, is the new one.
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.
no ima say B
o nvm XD
thx for the help doe
1more right i wouldve passed
XD the last one was B
B? O.o u sure?
it makes a sentence so it doesnt need the commas
why? please explain, I learned that those kind of phrases should be in between the commas ;-;
the dress hanging is the new one
it still works without the participle phrase
yeah now I remember about restrictive vs non-restrictive clauses..so if it still works without the participial phrase, the sentence should use commas
but if the sentence can't stand without that phrase, it's okay not use commas
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
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
and ya it doesnt work without the phrase
:D now it's clear. I remember some concepts because of you thanks !
