Complete Predicates

A complete predicate consists of both the verb of a sentence and the words around it. The words that modify the verb and complete its meaning.

So, in this sentence, “He” is the subject. And so, I’m going to put one line under it.

And “ran” is the verb of this sentence. So:

He ran a long way.”

So, just a simple predicate would just be the verb right here, “ran“. But, we’re looking for a complete predicate here.

So, a complete predicate is going to be all the sentences that modify and further describe the verb. So, “ran a long way” is the complete predicate in this sentence.
