Subject Predicative.

Post by Steffano » Mon Oct 14, 2019 12:53 am

Love (s) remains (v) a complete mystery (SP).

The SP “a complete mystery” gives more information about the subject.

Question: I think that "a complete mystery" is the Subject Predicative. Somehow I doubt I am right.

Yes, or alternatively termed 'predicate nominative'.
