Hi. I am glad you liked it. Gerunds are sometimes difficult to identify. They end with ing and modify (point to) nouns.

Example: I like to go swimming. Here, swimming is a verb.
If I use it this way-"She wanted to jump into the community's swimming pool." Then swimming is used correctly as a gerund as it modify's pool.

Hope this helps.See more
