    Explanation
    The predicate in a sentence is the part that expresses the action or state of being. In this case, "ran on the beach" is the predicate because it describes the action that Sam and his dog performed. The other options do not express the action or state of being, so they are not the predicate.

    The correct subject in the sentence "Mr. Hansen teaches the class" is "Mr. Hansen." It is a simple sentence with one independent clause.
