Here are Subject and Predicate Examples with Answers. Before we jump onto the examples and answers, let us know about the definition of these two.

Definition of Subject and Predicate

When we speak or write a sentence, we use two things.

  1. First, we speak/write some person or things.
  2. Second, we say something about that person or thing.

We, therefore, on the basis of the above, can divide a sentence into two part – Subject and predicate.

The subject is the person or thing we speak about. And predicate is the part that we speak about. Let us take an example.

John is feeling well now.

Here, in the above sentence, John is the person we are speaking about. Therefore, John is the subject of the sentence. On the other hand, something is told about John ( is feeling well now). Therefore, this part is the predicate part of the sentence.

Finally, we can say every sentence has two parts – subject and predicate.

Usually subject comes at the first of the sentences. However, sometimes, you can find the subject in the last of the sentences. See the Subject and Predicate Examples with Answers below.

Here comes my friend.

Subject: My friend

Predicate: Here comes

And one more thing. Don’t be confused in an Imperative Sentence. The subject is not written or spoken in such a sentence. See the example below.

Listen carefully.

Here, the subject is you. However, it is not written/spoken here. And listen carefully is the predicate part.

Now, hope you got it. Let us have some Subject and Predicate Examples with Answers and explanations as well to make it clearer.
