1. The complete subject of the first sentence is "the tennis racket he used when he won the tennis match." The complete predicate is "Here is." This sentence is in inverted order, with the subject before the predicate. In normal order, the sentence would read, "The tennis racket he used when he won the tennis match is here." The simple subject is "racket" and the simple predicate is "is." Modifiers of the subject "racket" are the article "the", the adjective "tennis", and the adjective clause "he used when he won the tennis match." The lone modifier of the verb "is", is the adverb "here." 2. The complete subject of the second sentence is the pronoun "He". The complete predicate is "was wearing green shorts, a blue plaid shirt, and white socks". The subject "He" has no modifiers. Nor does the verb "was wearing". The direct object of the verb "was wearing" is part of the complete predicate. The direct object is "green shorts, a blue plaid shirt, and white socks."
