Question

Hiking is a pleasant activity. How does the underlined gerund function in the sentence?

2 Answer

  • The underlined gerund in this sentence is the word hiking, given that gerunds end in -ing and act as nouns. Having this in mind, the gerund here functions as the subject of the sentence
    What is a pleasant activity? - Hiking. 
    That is the easiest way to determine the function of a word in a sentence.
  • Answer:

    As a subject

    Hope this helps!
