In the sentence....They have done nothing wrong. I know "have done" is part of the verb phrase but not sure if "wrong" is part of the verb phrase too. Would "wrong" be included in the verb phrase?

asked by Brandi
  1. No.

    The whole verb is "have done" while "wrong" is an adjective modifying the direct object, "nothing."

    subject = They
    verb = have done
    direct object = nothing
    adjective modifying DO = wrong
