english HELP ASAP

the directions say :
For each sentence, find the infinitive phrase and write it in the blank on the left. Then tell whether it is used as a subject, direct object, predicate nominative, object of a preposition, or appositive.

the sentence is
The Legion of Mary decided to attend the March for Life.

i think the infinitive phrase is:
to attend the March of Life.

but i cant figure out if it is a subject, direct object, predicate nominative, object of a preposition, or appositive.

can someone help me




the sentence is
The Legion of Mary decided to attend the March for Life.

i think the infinitive phrase is:
to attend the March of Life.

That is correct! good!!!

but i cant figure out if it is a subject, direct object, predicate nominative, object of a preposition, or appositive.

Ok...you know it isn't the subject....
next.
A predicate nom. is the same thing as the subject...is the phrase and the subject identical and is there a linking verb between them?
An appositive is also identical to the noun and will immediately follow it. Does this Infinitive phrase qualify for either of those?

Then... a direct object is acted upon by the subject... and will answer the question WHAT after the verb... So ask, The Legion of Mary decided WHAT....
If the infinitive phrase answers that question, then it is a D.O.

Last, if the infinitive phrase is a modifier...describes either the noun or the verb.... it will be the object of a prepositional phrase.

I hope this helps... if you still need more help, please ask.
