    We will analyse the same on completion of related tasks.

    I want to know which part of speech completion is?

    Re: We will analyse the

    It's a noun, isn't it? Words with "-tion" usually are. Object of the preposition "on."

    Can I use completing (gerund) in the above sentence?

    Yes, if you get rid of the of.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    That's probably still true, though the habit of verbing nouns may change that.
    You can proposition someone; petition someone; apportion blame; transition into a situation where you sanction something, etc.

    If this verbing carries on too much, I will revolution against it.

    Re: We will analyse the

    It means completing is verb? With "ion" it was noun.

    Re: We will analyse the

    Technically, "completing" would be a gerund (a verbal). "Completion" is a noun.
