I have gone through the definition of participle given at

I still have the following questions regarding the participle:

  1. On what basis are the verbs classified as participle?

  2. Which form of the verb is not participle form?

This looks rather like a homework or test question. I would suggest that you look at the sections on verb forms in a good grammar text.
