Are these correct? What's the subject and what's the verb?
1. The generating points in this map suck.
2. The generating points in this map sucks.
Is 'in this map' a clause? If not, what do you call that part?
"The generating points on the map suck."
This is a complete sentence on its own, where 'the generating points on the map' is the noun phrase subject of the verb 'suck'.
A clause is an expression including a verb and a predicate that gives an "extra information" about the subject and doesn't make sense if it's used by itself (see in italics)
ex: the generating points, which are on the map, suck.
