Is it too expensive to travel to Europe?
My list of answers contains:
Adverb, subject, direct object, adjective, object of preposition, and predicate noun.
I chose predicate noun.
Also, if an adjective precedes an infinitive like it does in this case, how can I determine its function?
You are correct. The adjective "too" modifies "expensive."
I disagree. "Expensive" is an adjective, it can only be modified by an adverb. In this case, "too."
The infinitive phrase is an appositive. There is no predicate noun; there is a predicate adjective (expensive)
The basic sentence is
It is expensive.
The appositive makes it equivalent to:
To travel is expensive.
So, the phrase functions as the subject.
Wow, that sounds complicated. Thank you for your help!
