Present Participles (Interactive Test)

A Test on Present Participles

Test your understanding of the term "present participle" with this interactive test. This test is linked to the lesson on present participles, which also has a test.

Remember, present particples end -ing. They are formed from verbs and are used as adjectives (e.g., running water) or to form verb tenses (e.g., I was running). Be careful when doing these tests – not every word that ends -ing is a present participle.
