A sentence is a group of words that contains a subject and a verb and expresses a complete thought.
A simple subject is the noun or pronoun that precisely identifies who or what does something or exists in a certain state in a sentence. In the following sentences, the simple subjects are highlighted in bold text. Two straight lines divide the complete subject from the complete predicate.
