You will need a few basic tools. If you are just replacing a damaged plug you will probably only need a screwdriver. If you need to strip back the insulation and trim the wires you will also need a sharp knife and side cutters, or a wire stripping tool.

What is the grammatical form and function of "back" in "strip back"?
How do we confirm that whether "strip back" is a phrasal verb or not?
What does is it mean in the context?

The Leeds Bronchiectasis service was set up in 1998 and provides secondary and tertiary care for people with bronchiectasis living in Leeds and west Yorkshire region.

http://www.leedsth.nhs.uk/a-z-of-services/respiratory-medicine/bronchiectasis/

Is "living in Leeds...region" a reduced relative clause ( people who live in Leeds....) with the subject "people"?

Why have they used simple present "provides" and not present perfect "have been providing"?

Can we use "and providing(present participle)... instead of "and provides tertiary..."?

The Emperor was warned of the impending disaster. He made good his escape.
The above two can be combined using the participle phrases or clauses as follows:
Being warned of the impending disaster, the Emperor made good his escape.
Would there be any difference in meaning if the perfect participle, i.e., "Having been warned", was used (instead of "Being warned") in that sentence?

Combine each pair of sentences into one simple sentence by using participles.

3. The Emperor was warned of the impeding disaster. He made good his escape.

Answer 3: Being warned of the impending disaster, the Emperor made good his escape.
Please explain the use of "being" in the above combined sentence using participles.

What is the grammatical form and function of "to...prominence "?
Is it a prepositional phrase ?
Is it a complement or object of "returned"?

I'm K.M. Weiland: a fighter, a writer, a child of God. I'm the award-winning and internationally published author of the bestselling Outlining Your Novel and Structuring Your Novel.
Most Common Writing Mistakes, Pt. 44: Too Many Participle Phrases - Helping Writers Become Authors
Please explain the use of "the" in "the award-winning". I can't see any specific reference so think indefinite article would be correct.
