Peanut butter is rich in protein?

Rich or protein?

    The simple predicate is always the verb.

    The verb in this sentence is IS.

    The complete predicate is IS RICH IN PROTEIN.

    Strange directions.

    The only answer can be IS.

    We are to underline the verb and identify the predicate noun or adjective?

  • English - , Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 6:45pm

    Ahh -- that makes a big difference!

    Since "in protein" is a prepositional phrase, the predicate noun or adjective cannot be protein.

    What do you think the predicate adjective is?

    What about ninety percent of its ingredients are crushed peanuts.

    Crushed or peanuts and why?

  • English - , Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 6:48pm

    Peanuts tells what most of the ingredients are. Crushed is an adjective modifying this predicate noun.
