First Question:

In the above passage, how many phrasal modals are there?

I believe there are only two:

1) used to

2) was supposed to

I am wondering if "could be" is also a phrasal modal. I know that "could" is a modal, so does that mean "could be" is a phrasal modal?

Second Question:

In the above passage, the predicate of the first sentence is:

a) Zach

b) used

c) used to work

d) used to work at an independent record label

I believe the answer is "d", because my understanding of a predicate is that it is a verb and all objects and modifiers that go with it. I think that "used to work" makes up the verb and "at an independent record label" are the modifiers
