  1. was swimming - Verb phrase

    Explanation:

    The 'ing' form used here is 'was swimming' and however, it illustrates the "ing" from of the verb that is commonly used in all these four options verb phrase(in continuous tense), participles(present) and gerund. But the form that has been exemplified as verb phrase i.e. 'was swimming' as it details an action and used with a helping verb. The participles  function as adjectives while gerunds function as noun.
