  1. This is supremely easy! Just find sentences within sentences that make sense to the subject!

  2. Isabel is right -- just look for a sentence inside the whole sentence.

    Let us know what you find, and someone here will be happy to comment.

  3. I deplore the fact that bats have wings.
    --> bats have wings
    That Guinevere loves Lorian is known to all my friends
    --> Guinevere loves Lorian

    This is what someone told me but then i looked at the sample problem:
    "Yesterday I noticed my accountant repairing the toilet"--> the answer to this was "my accountant repairing the toilet" which is not a sentence

  4. The two that you listed at the top are correct. These can be sentences on their own.

    The example with "repairing" in it is not an embedded sentence; you are right.

  6. I don't understand it either, but then I've seen lots of BAD MISTAKES in textbooks. Not every text is perfect. Just know that you are right: "my accountant repairing the toilet" is not a complete sentence. The ones you wrote in the third post here are correct.
