Subject and Predicate Exercises for Class 6

A sentence, as you know, is a group of words that make complete sense.

In these sentences, underline the thing or person who is doing the action.
· Mayank saw a scary movie.
. The brown dog crossed the road.
· My mother baked a cake.
. Jagadish went to the store.
. The lion roared loudly.
. The students marched well.

What did you notice?

Every sentence tells us about someone or something and about what they do.

The part of the sentence that tells us who or what the sentence is about is called the subject.

The most important word in the subject is called the subject word. The subject word is always a noun or a word that does the work of a noun.

The rest of the sentence is called the predicate. It tells us something about the subject.

For example,
. The tiger lives in the jungle.
Here, the highlighted part is the subject, and the rest of the sentence is the predicate. The predicate can be a single word. That word, then is a verb.
· Dogs bark.

In each of these sentences, the subject comes at the beginning of the sentence.
However, in some sentences, the subject does not come at the beginning.

For example,
. Down rolled the boulders.
Here, the subject is at the end of the sentence.

In imperative sentences, the subject is always you. However, the subject is understood rather than expressed. For example,
-Throw the ball.

Here, the subject you has been dropped.

In exclamatory sentences, the subject can be placed towards the end. For example,

-What a wonderful person you are!

In interrogative sentences, too, the subject does not come at the beginning. For example,

-Do you believe him?
Here we see that the subject comes between the helping verb and the main verb.
