English HELLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!

posted by .

okay, so i have this English test tommorow morning on subjects & predicates, can u please help me!!!

My first question is, I know that a prepositional phrase isn't supposed to be included in the simple subject, but can it be included in the complete subject?
For Example : On Beartooth Highway in Montana, excellent campgrounds and scenic overlooks provide many views of distant glaciers.
CS - On Beartooth Highway in Montana, excellent campgrounds and scenic overlooks
SS - campgrounds and overlooks
CP - provide many views of distant glaciers.
SP - provide
Would this be correct?

Secondly, this sentence confused me a little - Sacagawea of the Shoshones helped open the West.

CS - Sacagawea of the Shoshones
SS - Sacagawea
CP - helped open the West
SP - helped open

Is this correct? I m confused because of the "helped." Would that be included in the simple predicate?

    My first question is, I know that a prepositional phrase isn't supposed to be included in the simple subject, but can it be included in the complete subject? sometimes; only if it's modifying that subject
    For Example : On Beartooth Highway in Montana, excellent campgrounds and scenic overlooks provide many views of distant glaciers.
    CS - On Beartooth Highway in Montana, excellent campgrounds and scenic overlooks No, just "excellent ... overlooks" is the complete subject.
    SS - campgrounds and overlooks yes, but I think without the conjunction "and"
    CP - provide many views of distant glaciers. yes
    SP - provide yes
    Would this be correct?
    I think the prepositional phrases at the beginning of the sentence are more adverbial than adjectival.

    Secondly, this sentence confused me a little - Sacagawea of the Shoshones helped open the West.

    CS - Sacagawea of the Shoshones
    SS - Sacagawea
    CP - helped open the West
    SP - helped open
    Only "helped" is the SP; "open" is part of an infinitive, except that the word "to" (in front of "open" has been omitted.

    Is this correct? I m confused because of the "helped." Would that be included in the simple predicate?
    Is the above explanation clear?
