Noun clause vs. Gerund!! Need help =)

1

Hello everyone,

 

I came across the topic of gerund and noun clause through my recent study . From this following example, what are the bolded text called in grammar (a gerund phrase, gerund clause, a noun clause)?? Are they the same in some circumstance?

 

ex.1 -- Having read the book once before makes me more prepared.

 

ex.2 -- Eating biscuits in front of the television is one way to relax.

 

Many thanks :)

Having read the book once before makes me more prepared.

Eating biscuits in front of the television is one way to relax.

 

The lines in bold are gerunds acting as a subject of the sentence.
