Identify the complements in the following sentences. Then, tell
whether each complement is a predicate nominative, a predicate
adjective, a direct object, or an indirect object. If a sentence does not
contain a complement, write no complement.
[1] My brother made Mom a birthday cake. [2] However, the project soon became a fiasco.
[3] First, Bill cracked three eggs into a bowl.
[4] Unfortunately, bits of the shells went in, too.
[5] Then he added the flour and other dry ingredients.
[6] The electric mixer whirled the batter right onto the ceiling.
[7] The batter was so sticky that it stayed there and didn’t fall off.
[8] Bill did not clean the ceiling immediately, and the sticky substance hardened overnight.
[9] Mom was not angry, but she did give Bill a suggestion for a gift.
[10] “A clean kitchen would be a great birthday present.”
