  • Grammar -

    First find the verbs in each of these sentences. Then, find the subject.

    Here's the first one:

    Complete subject: The smell of cooking
    Predicate: is delicious to the hungry campers

    I'll be glad to check your answers for the other two sentences.

  • Grammar -

    Is this correct?
    Subject: The whole family
    Predicate: travels in our new camper.

    Would the simple subject and predicate be family and travels?

    Next one to check:

    Subject: Everybody
    Predicate: helps to pitch the tent under a tree.
    Would the simple predicate be helps to helps to pitch?

    Next one to check:

    Subject: They
    Predicate:will use a compass on their hike.

  • Grammar -

    They are correct except --

    the simple predicate in the second sentences is "helps."

    The simple predicate is only the verb.
