Participles: which case do I use?

I can't figure out when to make a participle agree with the sujbect, the object or when to make the whole thing an ablative absolute. I'm going through N&H's composition book, and the solutions seem random. For example, I know that when the participial phrase shares neither subject nor object with the main clause, then I use the ablative absolute, but N&H used it when the clauses do share a subject (D below).

A. (example ...

Do you know ...

Does anyone know how to translate in Latin?

- with varying success (in war)

- after more than one and a half century of enmity


I can't find this in a dictionnary. If someone is reading Caesar right now, it's easier to know this then.


Thanks for your help,

Moerus.

hirriens

I'm assuming this word is a misprint in Harrius, because it's not in my dictionary, nor in words.exe. Here is its context:
'age vero, puer, audi verba mea,' inquit hirriens. (The fellow speaking is is in a somewhat excited state.)
I'm assuming it's a present participle of either 3rd-i or 4th conjugation. Or it could be horrens, (bristling) but that would require 2 spelling mistakes in the same word. Does anyone have any ideas?

NH Composition 24.5 (Syncopation)

I'm working through N&H's composition book and I have a question about exercise 24, #5.

The soldiers having been captured gave up their arms.


N&H give the solution:

Capti milites arma tradidere.


Is this a typo or an alternate form for "tradiderunt"?
