Cochant is a verb of imperative form or a noun? This word I can see as a verb with it conjugation but nothing similar with a form of cochant.

Could anybody help me with the form of the word: 'cochant'?

I have learned third person plural conjugation is cochent, but this word 'cochant' I couldn't find in a dictionary. 

As you know, cocher is infinitive form of verb but what about cochant? Please!

The original context: "Répondez aux questions en cochant la ou less bonne response."

Please help me!

Hi Mohammed, 

The verb is 'cocher' which means to tick.

en cochant = by ticking 

is the gérondif and below is the lesson you need -

En + "-ant" = While/by + "-ing" in French (Gerund/Le Gérondif)

Bonne Continuation !
