This sentence has two noun clauses, and yes, the "that..." clause is the predicate nominative. "What we forgot to mention" is the noun clause that is serving as the subject of the main verb "was" -- do you see the structure of all this now? It'...

English
You're correct that the "that..." clause is a noun clause. The trick is to figure out what's going on in the rest of the sentence. But there's a second noun clause there. Do you see it? "was" is the main verb. What kind of verb is it?

Think of the word "predicate" as meaning the same thing as "verb." In #7, the simple predicate is "made" but the complete predicate (the verb and everything that goes with it) is "made it through the grueling admissions process."
December 16, 2014

English - Writeteacher
Yes, #7 is the complete subject. I'd point out #6 to your teacher as an error. I'll take that sentence apart for you, too ~ She - pronoun, subject had - main verb a - article lengthy - adjective, modifying "career" career - noun, direct object as - ...

English - Writeteacher
These are tricky, aren't they? The word "as" has many meanings and uses. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/as?s=t In #6, the word "as" is being used as a preposition. What did you decide about #7?
December 16, 2014

English - Writeteacher
I don't see a correct answer there for #6. The direct object in that sentence is "career." #7 is incorrect.

It cannot be intransitive. Transitive verbs take direct objects. Intransitive verbs DON'T take direct objects.

I'd go with D. Proponents of capital punishment in the US definitely believe A and B. And capital punishment seems to be widely accepted internationally, since "internationally" means considering people's attitudes and beliefs in ALL countries in the world.
