I know it's not math, but I have a test tomorrow, and I want to make sure I understand these things, and nobody is helping in the English section. I really hope I don't start to annoy anyone, but I have 18 questions I'm asking separately. Please help me.
I'm not exactly sure about this question, but I tried to answer it anyway, can you check my answer?

All the question said was participle phrase.
I'm so sorry. This is an advanced class for me, and I just started the class. And I (obviously) don't really know anything about it.
But, thank you for helping, I'll give you a medal.
Oh ok.. But anyways it is "child" - a participial phrase is modifying child because this is the main subject. describing what he/she is doing - waiting
Oh! Okay! I think I understand that.
Could you help me with my other questions? I have 17 more, so you don't have to help me with them all; or at all....
Choose the answer that identifies the gerund in the sentence.
Swimming against the current is just one of the challenging aspects that people participating in the triathlon will be facing.
So you are in Verbals.. This is a gerund now.. Okay a Gerund indicates a NOUN...
The gerund here is "Swimming" because it has the same function of a noun
while the rest... all indicates an adjective which describes/modifies
Facing - participle
challenging - participle
participating - participle
Okay. I'm not sure if I understand that. The next question is a gerund too.
If you would like, I can close this question and start a new one so I can give you another medal? I really do appreciate your help!
And tell me if you don't want to help anymore, because I will completely understand! Lol.
