    Correct Answer
    B. Predicate Noun
    Explanation

      Predicate Noun

    Correct Answer
    A. Indirect Object
    Explanation
    In the given sentence, "Susan" is the recipient of the action performed by the subject "my mom." The verb "baked" is transitive, meaning it requires both a direct object (the cake) and an indirect object (Susan) to complete its meaning. Therefore, "Susan" functions as the indirect object in this sentence.

    Correct Answer
    B. Subject
    Explanation
    The subject of a sentence is the person or thing that performs the action or is being described. In this sentence, "My teacher and I" is the subject because they are the ones who love to read mysteries. The other options, predicate noun and indirect object, do not accurately describe the role of "My teacher and I" in the sentence.

    Correct Answer
    A. Object of the Preposition
    Explanation
    The given statement "Barack Obama is President of the United States" indicates that Barack Obama holds the position of President in the United States. In this sentence, "of the United States" is a prepositional phrase that functions as an adjective, providing additional information about the noun "President." Therefore, "Object of the Preposition" is the correct answer as it correctly identifies the role of "of the United States" in the sentence.
