[FONT=&#54632]When Katy opened the door, there stood her piano teacher. Katy felt worried, for ① she hadn't practiced in days and Miss Medwick was sure to make her go over those dull scales again and again. Katy quietly sat down at the piano. She played the first song with no trouble at all. She played all ② her scales perfectly. Miss Medwick was so surprised she had Katy open the piano book further along and play a brand-new song. Katy played every note perfectly. Louise came downstairs ...

What is the subject of this sentence? The writer? or general judgement?
Miss Medwick was sure to make her go = I(the writer) am sure that Miss Medwick would make her go...

By the same token, who is the subject for this?
He is sure to come = I am sure that he will come?

Number 1 says that the teacher is going to make Katy practice ("go over") her scales repeatedly.

You understand he is sure to come correctly.

I was curious who was sure.
