    Re: Diagramming Sentences

    "Those books were expensive" is a simple sentence having “those books” as its subject and “were expensive” the predicate. The subject is a noun phrase with “books” as its head. “Those” is an attributive adjective describing the head noun “books”. The predicate consists of the linking (main) verb “were” and the predicative adjective “expensive” which also modifies the subject.
