FINITE AND NON-FINITE VERBS.
Every main clause needs a finite verb. A finite verb is marked for tense or aspect and needs a subject e.g. he walked. A non-finite verb is not marked for tense or aspect and does not have a subject e.g. having walked, walking slowly….., to walk.

Indicate whether the underlined verb form is finite or non-finite.
