    The predicate adjective in the sentence "The Idaho sunset is pretty" is "pretty." A predicate adjective is an adjective that follows a linking verb (in this case, "is") and describes the subject (in this case, "Idaho sunset"). "Pretty" describes the quality or appearance of the Idaho sunset.

    " Our new teacher seemed pleasant."   T or F: 'new' is the predicate adjective in this sentence

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In the given sentence, "Our new teacher seemed pleasant," the word "new" is not functioning as a predicate adjective. Instead, it is an adjective modifying the noun "teacher." The predicate adjective, if present, would describe the subject "teacher" and come after a linking verb. However, in this sentence, there is no linking verb, and "new" is not describing the teacher's state or condition. Therefore, the statement "new" is the predicate adjective in this sentence is false.

A predicate adjective is an adjective that follows a linking verb and describes the subject of the sentence. In this case, the verb "comes" is not a linking verb, but rather an action verb. Therefore, there is no adjective that describes the subject "friend" or "home."
