Topic: Subject Complements

What is a subject complement?
A subject complement is the information that follows a linking verb to describe, identify, or rename the subject of the clause.
...
A subject complement can either be a predicate noun, a predicate pronoun, or a predicative adjective.

Quiz:
1. Which of the following is used to describe the subject of a clause?

a) Predicate nouns
b) Predicate pronouns
c) Predicative adjectives
d) A & B
e) B & C
f) All of the above

F, right? That's what the information quoted above says very clearly.

Nope! The "correct" answer is c) Predicative adjectives

They regularly screw you on the quiz.

The number, the industry, and the morality of the priesthood, and the devotion of the people have been manifestly increased by the total separation of the church from the state.

I love to escape deep into the beauty of nature. I'll hike solo to very remote places and in areas known for coyotes, scorpions, rattlesnakes, wolves, mountain lions, black bears, grizzly bears, and even polar bears. Some folks don't mind telling me they think I'm a little crazy for doing it.

But this kind of stuff? No thanks... I prefer my survival odds in the 90s and my land environments with, you know... air.

Reminds me of an old comic...
Looking over the shoulder of someone reading a newspaper:
• First page headline - "People You Agree With"
• Second page headline - "IDIOTS"
Topic: He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
