YOUR ANSWER: All women is the subject and are poor drivers is the verb.

We didnt say that the sentence All women are poor drivers consists of a subject and verb and nothing else. There are some words in this sentence that are neither subject nor verb, so after you have designated the subject and verb you should have some words
left over.

You have divided the sentence into its subject and predicate. All women is the subject, because all women is what the sentence is about. Are poor drivers is the predicate, because this is what the sentence says about all women. Now, the verb is contained in the predicate. Here the verb is the word are. This verb is what is called a linking verb because it functions as a connecting link between the subject and the words that complete the thought of the sentence.

So now you know which words are the subject and the verb. Go back to page 1 and choose the correct answer.
