    Re: is this a complete sentence?

    Hello Guest,

    No, they're not complete sentences, as they lack a finite verb. These would be complete sentences:

    1. She has aged perfectly. It is something to be appreciated.

    However, as a stylistic device, sentences like yours are not uncommon, especially in e.g. later 20th century fiction and magazine articles.

    Best wishes,
