Identify the simple subject and simple predicate in each sentence.

There are children waiting in the lobby.

Simple subject: = children

simple predicate = are waiting

(asked yesterday and you said -
* was waiting *) wondering if you
meant are waiting because *are* is
used in the sentence.
Thanks

  2. Yes, I probably read that sentence too fast -- should be "are," not "was," clearly!!
