    1. Mary(S) makes(V) me(DO) sad(OC) every(A) Sunday(
    This should be the object of preposition ‘on’ which is not used before the word ‘every’.)
    2. The less worldly members of his household(S) often(A) describe(V) this small indulgence(DO) as a waste of time(OC).
    3. They(S) never(A) fail(V) to be surprised(SC,
    this is an adjective phrase complimenting the subject ‘they’ ).
    4. Susan(S) tells(V) me(DO) on Monday(A) the name of the book(IO) she is going to read(OC,
    This is an adjective clause complimenting the IO ).
