A book that has an exciting introduction and a surprising ending would be the best story for me to read.

I am suppose to re write this sentence to make sure it has logical Predication. Make sure that the subject of your sentence makes sense with the verb.
could someone explain this to me


http://www.answers.com/topic/postulation-predication

Make sure you are absolutely clear on the meaning of the word "predication."

1. predication, postulation: a declaration of something self-evident; something that can be assumed as the basis for argument

2. postulation, predication is a kind of declaration — a statement that is emphatic and explicit (spoken or written)

Grammatically, the sentence is fine, although I would leave the word "story" out -- it's redundant, I think. But does this sentence state an idea that is emphatic and self-evident? That's what you need to decide. Then you can rewrite the sentence to fit.

Please re-post with a revised sentence; someone here will give you feedback.
