    Decipher a complicated setence using the four step procedure.

    Can someone please help me decipher this sentence using the four step procedure?

    I am really confuse. I know the core part subject is war. Verb is 'is'

    war, in other words, is too complex and collective an activity to be accounted for by a single warlike instinct lurking within the individual psyche.

    Thank you

    Is a method use to break down a complicated setence by finding all the parts to the setence. Ex core part, verb, modifier, conjunction, subordinate. But it can get confusing.

    I am sorry to tell you that we do not help with homework here. Your teacher wants to see your work, not our work.
