Every sentence consists of two parts, subject and predicate :

  1. The part which names the person or thing we speak about.
    This part of the sentence is called the Subject.
  2. What is said of the person or thing denoted by the Subject.
    This part of the sentence is called the Predicate.

1. We have done our duty
2. Birds fly in the air

    • Down dropped the breeze.
