I just did an exercise that involved locating the complete subject and the complete predicate of a sentence. This is the sentence:
Bill Reynolds is and amazing baseball player.
The correct answer in the text book had the complete subject as 'Bill Reynolds is' but most people thought the complete subject was just 'Bill Reynolds'.
Any clarification would be extremely helpful.
You are correct, Bill Reynolds is the subject. One does wonder who comes up with these EFL texts. By the way, the sentence should read:
Bill Reynolds is an (not "and") amazing baseball player.
Right, I had a typo in my sentence.
So the subject is just Bill Reynolds. The verb 'is' would be included in the predicate?
