How do you find it a participle in a sentence?

When we have no regular adjective, we generally make an adjective by a verb--it is called participle--present or past both.

Like Bored students, here bored is a past participle that modifies/explicit ==students.

Participle is a verbal and always functions in a sentence like an adjective, just keep in mind.

Gerund is like derived by a verb too adding ing but is always it acts like a noun.

Like--Seeing is believing.

Here seeing ==sub, believing==object. both act like a gerund==nouns.
