Instructions: For each clause, identify (if present) the subject, direct object, indirect object, main verb, subjective complement, objective complement
Sentence 1:
Indeed a most fruitful consequence of the Turing machine has been with the creation, study and computation of functions which are computable, i.e., in computer programming.

Sentence 2:
This is not surprising since computers can compute so much more than we yet know how to specify.

A few more sentences I wasn't sure of.

For Sentence 1, is "consequence" the only subject? Also is "been" the main verb? Not really sure on the objects and complements

For Sentence 2, is "This" the only subject and "is" the main verb? Not really sure on the rest.

Thanks a lot for the help.

You're right. (And the subordinate since clause also has a subject and verb (phrase). And the comparative than clause also has them, as shown.)
