    1. Linking verb: is; Predicate nominative: Penelope CORRECT

    2. Linking verb: will be; Predicate nominative: Jason PN IS WRONG

    3. Linking verb: is; Predicate nominative: Mrs. Furillo PN IS WRONG

    4. Linking verb: was; Predicate nominative: Rocky Marciano PN IS WRONG

    5. Linking verb: is; Predicate nominative: red PN IS WRONG

    6. Linking verb: have been; Predicate nominative: leon PN IS WRONG

    You're mixing up the subject with the predicate nominative. PNs are nouns or pronouns that follow the linking verbs.
