Take another look at the sentence:

Danny loved going to the beach. He watched beautiful women in skimpy bikinis, ate fresh seafood, and swum in the refreshing water. After a shark bit his leg, however, Danny preferred the pool at his apartment complex.

The second verb, swum, is incorrect. The sentence requires the simple past form, swam, because there are no auxiliary verbs.

Swim is an irregular verb; the chart below shows its forms.

Bit, the verb you chose, is perfectly correct. Before you continue, review the rules for irregular verbs.
