Identify the simple subject and simple predicate in each.
The elderly patient's deep venous thrombosis was treated with Coumadin.
1. simple subject-
2. simple predicate
? is the answers more than one word?
A main verb (simple predicate) can have more than one word, yes.
You've got the simple predicate right, but not the subject. Ask yourself: Who or what "was treated..."?
In my lessons it explains - find the simple predicate first.
yes ask yourself the question
Who or What was treated-
ANSWER: venous thrombosis
I believe you can leave out the word deep - ? that would be an adjective describing the above?
Are there other types of thrombosis? If there are, then keep venous. If not, then venous is an adjective, too.
I Googles thrombosis -
found that besides venous thrombosis there is also deep vein thrombosis-
Answer: keep the word venous
simple subject: venous thrombosis
OK, good. =)
