Parts of speech

Postby rampuria » Fri May 18, 2012 4:12 pm

After almost a decade, ITC, the biggest corporate house in the east and one of the top busniess conglomerates in India, is betting big on Bengal.

What is the main verb in the sentence?
What role does the underlined portion play?
Is ' on Bengal' a prepositional phrase
