Select the correct statement:
A) The subject of the sentence is that part about which something is being said, and it sometimes contains a noun or pronoun.
B) The predicate of the sentence is that part about which something is being said, and it always contains a noun or pronoun.
C) The subject of the sentence is that part about which something is being said.
D) The subject of the sentence is that part about which something is being said, and it always contains a noun or pronoun.

    C is probably the best answer. D could also be correct if people remember that infinitives and gerunds are verb forms being used as nouns, but overall, I think C is best among these.

    My word! Where on earth did you get this convoluted question? It's one of the most awkward examples of the English language I've ever seen!

    C. is correct.

    However, D is also correct considering that phrases and clauses used as a subject are also considered nouns.

    Thanks so much for the help!
