Zev who likes to learn, asks...
In the sentence, "Mr.Bono made a map" what is the predicate of the sentence?
Anne answers...
Sentences are composed of subjects and predicates. In your sentence, Mr. Bono is the subject; that is, he is the person being described. The predicate is everything else in the sentence. In your case, it is "made a map." Predicates explain the action and the consquences of what the subject is doing.
