what is subject-verb

A sentence is mainly divided in two parts – Subject and Predicate.

The subject is that part of a sentence which names the person or thing that we are speaking about.

The predicate is that part of a sentence which tells us something about the subject. The predicate contains a verb and an object as well.


In a sentence, a subject comes first, the verb second and the object third. For example:

I like to eat rice. (I= subject, like to eat= verb, rice= object)

The books are kept in the bookshelf. (The books= subject, are kept= verb, bookshelf= object)

The girl is playing with a doll. (The girl= subject, is playing= verb, doll= object)
