    I will not do this for you, but I will give you some help on 1-8.

    I am assuming that you know how to recognize nouns and adjectives. Is that a valid assumption on my part? Here we go: A. How to find the direct object: first look for the verb. In your first problem, that is "stamped." To find the subject, ask "Who stamped?" The answer to that is "assistant." To find the direct object, ask "The assistant stamped what?" The answer to that will be the direct object. (In future years this is also the way to determine whether or not you have a transitive or an intransitive verb. Don't worry about that now). B. In order to find an indirect object, go through the previous three steps then ask "To whom or for whom did he do this?" If there is no answer to this question, there is no indirect object in that sentence. You do not have an indirect object in the first problem. C To find predicate nominatives, you must ask the first two questions in order to find the subject. A predicate nominative is a noun or a pronoun following a passive verb (is, was, etc.) that is the same as the subject. "It is I." "He is a teacher." D. To find a predicate adjective, you must go through the previous steps. A predicate adjective is an adjective following a passive verb that describes the subject. "I am tall." "He is crazy." Something that can be confusing is having a predicate nominative that is modified by an adjective: "He is a crazy teacher." In that case, "teacher" is a predicate nominative modified by a plain old adjective. Memorize those questions that I gave you. They will help you whenever you are trying to find parts of speech. Good luck and stay with it.

    What do you need help with exactly? Seems here you've added all the questions to the practice quiz and are asking for the answers. Would probably help you more if you were to google search some of the answers, like for indirect and direct object, that way you know what they are.
