2. All right.

The part which names the person or thing we are speaking about is called the subject of the sentence.

The part which tells something about the subject is called the predicate of the sentence.

Most of sentences have two parts-
1. Subject
2. Predicate

Sometimes predicate or some parts of predicate is placed before the subject to emphasize the specific part of sentence.

Ex: Silver and gold have I none.
Sweet are the uses of adversity.

Subject is omitted in Imperative sentence.
Ex: Sit down.
Play now

Sometimes subject may be omitted in Assertive Sentence
Ex: Thank you(Subject I omitted)
Hope, you are well.(Subject I omitted)

One part of the predicate (verb or one part of verb) is placed before the subject in Interrogative Sentence
