Being able to recognize the subject and the verb in a sentence will help you make sure that your sentences are complete and clear. Remember that in most sentences, the subject will come before the verb. Not so with questions. In a question, the verb often comes before the subject. Here are some examples.
- Is the cat on the roof? (The subject of the sentence is ‘cat.’)
- Are you coming with us? (The subject of the sentence is ‘you.’
- Here is your cat. (The subject of the sentence is ‘cat.’)
