I have a test coming up and my teacher gave us a review sheet and I have several questions that I am stumped on.

I need

a non-restrictive appositive modifying an IO, and an infinitive phrase as an adjective

an infinitive phrase as a PN modified by and adverb and an adjectival prep phrase

an appositive phrase and a gerund as the object of an infinitive

thanks

You should have made an attempt to do these yourself first, but given the challenge, I assume you did and failed or you wouldn't have posted. Emotion: smile

Hello!

I would love to help you with this one. But please first tell me what IO and PN stand for.

Thanks

AFE IO and PN
For what it's worth, I assumed indirect object and predicate nominative.

Thanks CJ!

Isn't an appositive always non-restrictive?

And now that I know what PN means I can have a try :-))

Teaching is to enjoy immensely the challenge. (Couldn't figure out an adjective / preposition phrase either. :-/

I don't think so.
