The correct answer is:

gerund


Explanation:

Gerunds are verbals that don’t act like a verb. One way to identify a gerund is to look for -ing words and determining how they are behaving in the sentence. For example, Swimming is a fun activity. In this sentence, Swimming is the gerund because it is what is fun, so it’s acting like a noun.
