Another activity I enjoy is drawing horses. What is simple subject?

  • grammar -

    What do you think the simple subject of this sentence is?

  • grammar -

    drawing horses

  • grammar -

    Nope, "drawing horses" is part of the predicate.

    First, take out the subordinate clause: "(that) I enjoy."

    That leaves: "Another activity is drawing horses."

    The verb is "is."

    Ask yourself WHAT is?
    The answer will give you the simple subject.

  • grammar -

    activity

    Right. The simple subject is "activity."
