Student or Learner
Could you please tell me what is the correct analysis of this sentence :
I have been trying to convince you that this is the right choice.
I => Subject
have been trying => predicate
to convince you that this is the right choice. =>infinitive (phrase) , function as an adverb to express the aim of the subject "I"
"to convince" has two objects :
O1 => you
O2 =>that this is the right choice. (a noun clause)
Hope this helps .
