What are Gerunds ??

Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

When the root form of verb is joined with a ‘ -ing’, the verb is known as a gerund. At times, they can even act as nouns and can become the subject or object of a sentence.

For example:

Jogging   is good for health.

You can see in the above example that, ‘jogging’ (like a noun) is the subject of the sentence, but at the same time it also has an object (like a verb), and this object is ‘health’.  This is why a gerund is called a verbal noun, or a noun that has the qualities of a verb.

I hope you find this answer helpful. Please post more questions on the forum to be assisted by our team. 
Thank you.

Gerund (/ˈdʒɛrənd/ or /ˈdʒɛrʌnd/; abbreviated GER) is a term for a verb form that functions as a noun. Although similar in usage to verbal noun, the two terms are not synonymous as gerund retains properties of a verb while verbal noun does not; in English this is most evident in the fact that a gerund can be modified by an adverb and can take a direct object.
