  2. I think in this sentence your teacher is trying to get you to identify the roles of different segments of a sentence such as Subject/Verb/Object. So now its time for you to ask yourself: who is the subject in the sentence, what is the action that is being demosntrated by the verb and what is the object that is being acted upon by the verb. What can throw students are the additional descriptions or phrases that are extraneous to the main sentence.

    HOpe that helps. :)
    Come back and tell us what your teacher wanted you to know with this and your previous question. Thanks!
