A long subject

Postby pdh0224 » Fri Apr 23, 2004 4:38 am

Dear teacher,

"There has been over the last several decades a whole slew of efforts to level the playing field for college admissions,"

Let me show you my analysis about the sentence.

S : a whole slew of efforts to level the playing

field for college admissions = There

V : has been

adverb phrase : over the last several decades



Am I right?



All the best, :)

Over the last several decades, a whole slew of efforts to level the playing field for college admissions has been :w:
