1 and 4 answered above.Please analyze the grammar of the underlined part of the following sentence.
After describing all of the elements and components of the 3G Mindset, the authors point readers to an assessment tool on the book's website that gauges, through an in-depth questionnaire, in which of these three areas the respondents are strong, and which elements need work.
My questions are as written.
1. Is the wrod "gauages" a noun or a verb? It's a verb. "The website gauges in which areas the respondents are strong".
4. If the word "gauges" is a noun, then is it the antecedent of the adjective clause "in which of these three areas...."?
See answer 1. It's not a noun.
