    Fellow grammatical experts I need your assistance!

    I am working on structuring sentences and I would appreciate someone checking my work for any errors. I am focusing on Subject and predicate.

    Red- subject

    Blue- Predicate

    If you're finding the whole subject, it includes its modifiers (adjectives, articles, etc.). The 'simple subject' is just the noun by itself.
    I bolded the simple subjects in red. Bolded the verbs in blue.
