  • Grammar -

    If you are being asked what the complete verb is, then no, neither answer is correct because you have included adverbs.

    If you are being asked what the complete predicate is, then no, neither answer is correct because you haven't included ALL the words in the predicate "half" of the sentence.

  • Grammar -

    Complete verbs:

    1. had been planned
    2. had been

    Complete predicates (that is, everything except the subject and whatever modifies it):
    1. had been secretly planned by the Wong twins.
    2. hadn't ever been to a state fair before
