My teacher didn't explain today's lessons about complete and simple predicates and subjects. How do you identiy them and what are they? Please give examples and explain them throughly.
"The large dog ran quickly."
The simple subject is "dog," while the complete subject includes the adjectives that modify it, "The large dog."
The simple predicate is the verb, "ran," whiile the complete predicate includes the adverbs that modify it, "ran quickly."
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
Can you tell me what the simple subject of this sentence:
Several of the caves are open to the public.
I say it is caves. My teacher said it was several. I thought that several would be the complete predicate. Can you help
