The complete subject refers to the "who" or "what" that is performing an action along with the associated modifiers. Modifiers can be adjectives and other descriptions that reference the associated noun. Complete subjects can also have prepositional phrases that provide descriptions of the simple subjects. Write a sentence that contains a noun, or the simple subject, and provide further descriptions of the noun to make it a complete subject.

A complete predicate offers an action verb or verbs along with associated modifiers. The simple predicate contains the action verb alone. In some instances, the verb sequence contains both an action verb and a linking verb. Write a sentence with a subject and an action verb that refers back to the subject.

Complete predicates have modifiers, such as adverbs, that describe the verb. The adverbs answer the question of how, when or where the action is performed. Prepositional phrases are also parts of complete predicates. Every word in a sentence is either part of a complete subject or a complete predicate.
