What is the simple subject of the following sentence? I am thinking it is "part," but it also seems like it could be "park."

A large part of the park is under water.

  1. You're right. The simple subject is "part."

    The simple subject can't be "park" because "park" is the object of a preposition.

    Also -- the park isn't under water -- only a part of it is submerged.
