Before you can identify the subject(s) and verb(s) in a sentence, you have to first identify any
prepositional phrases.

Subjects and Verbs

Review
Prepositional Phrases
-- are extra words added to a sentence to add more detail. If you delete them from the sentence, there will still be a subject and verb.

-- because prepositional phrases aren't essential, the sentence should still make sense after you take them out -- i.e., the subject and verb are NEVER in the prepositional phrase.

-- taking them out helps simplify the sentence.

Why look for prepositional phrases, first?
Once you have the prepositional phrases identified, find the verb.
