what is the complete subject and complete predicate to :
These crustaceans wait for feeding time at high tide.
The complete subject is the words that come before the verb. The complete predicate begins with the verb and continues to the end of the sentence.
Do you see what they are?
Ms. Sue, would crustaceans be the Complete Sub and the rest of the sentence be the complete predicate?
If a sentence has the verb are, can that be a complete predicate as well?
Simple subject: crustaceans
Complete subject: These crustaceans
Simple predicate: wait
Complete predicate: wait for feeding time at high tide.
The verb "are" is never the complete predicate. It's used as a helping verb with another verb or it's used to connect the subject with the predicate nominative or predicate adjective.
