Topic: English Grammar - Predicates
Posted: Sunday, November 4, 2018 4:29:43 AM
So, what's the predicate in the sentence "My sister and my brother both like to read."?
Is it
a) both like to read, or
b) like to read?

4. Identify the predicate in the following sentence:
“My sister and my brother both like to read.” a) My sister and my brother
b) both like to read (correct answer)
c) like to read (your answer)
d) to read
I thought ”both” in the sentence modifies the subject and, thus, isn't part of the predicate. Can someone explain? Thanks.

If you really want to stop or change what is wrong, you must investigate its cause, its root and start from there, otherwise you'll make no impact, your remedy ineffectual.
