In the sentence....They have done nothing wrong. I know "have done" is part of the verb phrase but not sure if "wrong" is part of the verb phrase too. Would "wrong" be included in the verb phrase?

  • Language Arts -

    No.

    The whole verb is "have done" while "wrong" is an adjective modifying the direct object, "nothing."

    subject = They
    verb = have done
    direct object = nothing
    adjective modifying DO = wrong
