Subject and Predicate
What is the subject and predicate for this sentence? Is the subject "a large tree" and the predicate would be "there was" ?
"Across the road there was a large tree which was very beautiful."
The simple subject is 'tree', and the simple predicate is 'was'.
The complete subject is 'a large tree which was very beatiful'. This is the simple subject and all of the words that modify it.
The complete predicate is 'was' and 'across the road'.
Across the road, there was a large tree, which was very beautiful.
It may be more clear if the sentence is written differently.
A large tree, which was very beatiful, was across the road.
