    Re: Why?

    If I were you,I would say:"Which one do you think is correct"(without "it") (sounds best to me)

    Cheers

    Yeah,just because "Which one do you think" here is the subject(the whole phrase,I mean),"is" is the verb and "correct" is the adjective.

    Cheers!

    Re: Why?

    I agree. There should be only one subject, not two. Consider,

    Statement: Blue is correct. <subject + verb + subject complement>
    Statement: Red is correct. <subject + verb + subject complement>
    Question: Which one is correct? <subject + verb + subject complement>

    There are two subjects in "Which one it is correct?".

    Note, there are two types of BE constructions:

    [1] Subject + BE + Subject Complement
    EX: It is blue.
    EX: She is a doctor.

    [2] Subject + BE + _____ING
    EX: He is walking.
    EX: They are talking.

    Hope that helps.

    Talking Re: Why?

    thank...


    Subject Complement is to describe subject? am i right?

    is it normally an adjective?


    how about has and have?
    do it also have subject complement?


    thank You,
