What would you say verbals are if you were allowed to say only one sentence and this sentence must not have contained the words:
participle, gerund, infinitive?

One more question that is out of the scope of the previous one:

"What would you have said verbals are if you had been allowed to say only one sentence and this sentence must not have contained the words: participle, gerund, infinitive?" Is this sentence correct? I think so.

They're any of the words within the part of speech that expresses existence, action, or occurrence.

I think so, two.

I think it's acceptable. But as you all know, my grammar sense is rather poor.Emotion: indifferent

In my opinion, all of your sentences are incorrect:

1) I don't know the noun "verbals" - did you mean verbs?
2)
"and this sentence must not have contained the words" - this is incorrect. Why not say "without using" instead?

Do native speakers actually ever use mustn't together with past infinitive (like in your sentences)? I've never heard it, and I think it is either incorrect or it has some special (and rather improbable) use.

I hate to break it to you but I'm still sure they're all wrong. However, I do get the meaning.

Where are the native speakers? Emotion: stick out tongue

"I hate to break it to you but I'm still sure they're all wrong."
"Do native speakers actually ever use mustn't together with past infinitive (like in your sentences)?" Do you mean past participle?!
Are you joking?

Well, I'm not joking. I've never seen things like "must not have contained" in any grammar book. I've never seen it in any novel/short story written by a native speaker either, and I've read quite a few of them.
I'm not saying it can't be used but I'm sure it's not correct in your sentences. Moreover, I think that if it can be used, it's probably just a less standard alternative to some other expression, e.g. "can't have contained".

Final word: If any of your sentences is correct, I will give up studying English and take up another language instead. Emotion: wink I promise.
