    eating oranges

    I am eating oranges everyday in the morning.


    Here eating is adjective or something? (Because it modifies `noun' orange)

    Hi, Gary,
    I think it should be in the Indefinite:
    I eat oranges every day...or every morning.
    Eating is a present participle in your sentence.
    Cheers

    Thank you humble,

    you told `eating' in my sentence is `present participle'

    But what i know is that `present participle' is also acts as `adjective'

    So, I think `eating' in my sentence is also adjective.

    Is it right?
