    They are trying to help you teach yourself how to do it. I would appreciate it more than an answer right away if I were you.

    Thanks a lot ..
    There are quite a few functions in your example. I've highlighted them in bold:

    The preposition phrase "with his friend" functions as Modifier in clause structure.

    "With” is Head of the PP, and "his friend" is Complement of "with". "His" is Determiner of "friend".

    "He" functions as Subject.

    "Found the movie theatre" functions as Predicate.

    "Found" functions as Predicator.

    "The" functions as Determiner of "movie theatre".

    "The movie theatre" is Object of "found". "Movie" is a Modifier of "theatre".

    Where did you find this exercise? Who gave it to you?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
