    Complete sentances?

    According to my teacher the following sentences are complete sentences but I do not see how they can be complete because I don't see a subject and a verb in both.

    "What time is it?" (time would be the subject but which word is the verb?)

    "Go away" (Go would be the verb but where is the subject?)

    How can these sentences be complete? Can you show me where the verbs and subjects are? Thankyou

    Re: Complete sentances?

    The verb is "is" in the first.

    With a command, the implied subject is "you."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
