in the sentence- There are many ways to cook eggs- what is the subject?

  • grammar -

    Since "there" cannot be a subject because it's an adverb, we have to look for a noun or pronoun as the subject.

    This sentence has only two nouns (and no pronouns).

    The verb is ARE. Which of the two nouns ("ways" or "eggs") tell what ARE?

    What do you think is the subject?

  • grammar -

    I think it's "ways"- my friends think it's "eggs"

  • grammar -

    Macey, Which makes better sense? "ways are" or "to cook eggs are". You are exactly right.
