The example sentence is

Some of you will take this test tomorrow

I have to identify the simple subject and simple predicate

I have written

Simple subject=You
Simple predicate=Will take

is this right?

Hi,

The example sentence is

Some of you will take this test tomorrow

I have to identify the simple subject and simple predicate

I have written

Simple subject=You The subject is some of you. I guess you could say the simple subject is some.



Simple predicate=Will take This is the predicate verb. The complete predicate is what is said about the subject, ie will take this test tomorrow

Best wishes, Clive
