    Analysis of sentences

    I was just wondering if anybody can help me with analyzing a few sentences.

    From these sentences, what is the complete predicate, types of verbs, objects and modifiers.
    1. Swimmers are supported by their coaches.
    2. Practice gives swimmers an advantage.
    3. Swimmers make their stroke light.

    State whether the underlined phrase is a noun phrase, a verb phrase, or a prepositional phrase.
    1. The house is quiet in the afternoon.
    2. The children are napping.
    3. The people are gathering near the door.
    4. The couple will have been married two years in April.
    5. The unobtrusive guest slipped out the door.


    Any help with any of these would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Theoretical stuff isn't really my 'bag'. Sorry

    For the last five, ask yourself (1) When? (2) What are they doing? (3) Where? (4) What will be the case? (5) Who?

    Those questions should put you on the right track.
