SUBJECT AND PREDICATE

SUBJECT

In a sentence, any object is a sentence. In a sentence, the prime focus of the subject will be the ‘what’ and ‘whom’. As the first part of the sentence is called as the Subject, the second part is called “Predicate”. A sentences’ part that tells us about a particular person or any thing is termed as the ‘Subject’ of that particular sentence. Remember that it is only an object that a subject can be like a noun or a pronoun.
