  1. His is not the subject.

    The best way to find a subject and verb is to first put parentheses around the prepositional phrases. Subjects, verbs, and complements are never in prepositional phrases.

    "His experience (with computers and copy machines) will be valuable (in an office)."

    That leaves

    His experience will be valuable.

    Do you see the verb and subject now?

  2. is the verb will?
