What is the complete predicate and simple preditaces in these sentences?

1. Rose Lee Parks lived in Alabama.

2. She became famous in 1955.

3.She rode on the bus one day in the city of Montgomery.

4. Mrs. Parks fought for her rights.

5. She claimed her seat on the bus.

6. Mrs. Parks showed a great deal of courage.

I need to underline the complete predicate and I need to circle simple predicate.

    Wow, I put this question on my watch list yesterday, just to see if anyone would bother to help you. I am surprised to see that no one did.

    It is really quite simple. Hopefully, you have figured it out by now, but if not, here are the answers:

    1. lived is the simple predicate and

    lived in Alabama is the complete predicate.

    2. became and became famous in 1955.

    3.rode and rode on the bus one day in the city of Montgomery.

    4. fought and fought for her rights.

    5. claimed and claimed her seat on the bus.

    6. showed and showed a great deal of courage.

    Do you get it now? The simple predicate is just the verb and the complete predicate is the rest of sentence from the verb to the end.

    Source(s): I think I'm smarter than a 5th grader. lol I hope I didn't steer you in the wrong direction. It has been a long time since grammar school for me. :)

    The simple predicate is "was." It's a linking verb. Late is an adjective, specifically the predicate adjective that is linked to and describes brother.
