    "The large dog ran quickly."

    The simple subject is "dog," while the complete subject includes the adjectives that modify it, "The large dog."

    The simple predicate is the verb, "ran," whiile the complete predicate includes the adverbs that modify it, "ran quickly."

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
