Review: Identifying Clauses, Answer 5.2

Good Work!

Question:
the author considering everything written on this subject
Answer:
The answer phrase is correct.
Explanation:
Although the words considering and written are verb participles, they are not acting as verbs, but as adjectives: considering modifies the noun author and written modifies the pronoun everything. Since there is no verb functioning as a predicate, this is a phrase.
