OK, maybe not. A participle is actually a verb that has been morphed into an adjective.
That's right -- a verb is just a participle that's had its... ciple cut off.
Usually you can recognize participles as ending in ING or ED.
In this question we have 3 crystal clear participles:
In B, we have FROTHING...
In C we have SCREAMING...
And in D we have CRYING.
Totally textbook participles.
So all that's left is A.
As in, "Aaaaaahhhh!"... the noise verbs make when you cut off their ciple.
