    Re: Perfect Participles

    What are your choices?

    (By the way, b uses an odd verb, at least in the US. Aroused tends to be associated with sexual excitemnent, not being woken up by dogs. And c gives me trouble logically. If he was warned more than once, then he must have repeated it, mustn't he have?)
