How do I know what the simple subject of the sentence is and the complete subject?

  • grammar -

    To find the subject, ask who or what is doing the action.

    The simple subject is almost always one word. The complete subject is the simple subject plus the words that describe it.

    Examples:
    Simple subject is underlined.
    Complete subject is bold faced.
    Verb is italicized.

    The dog across the street always chases our cat.

    One of my sisters is going to Mexico for Spring Break.

    Carolyn and Pat have been good friends for years.
