What is the predicate for this question?

One african bird is named the honey guide.

The predicate in any sentence is the verb and all that goes with it (adverbs, adverbial clauses and phrases). Usually the subject (and all that goes with it, if anything) comes first in a sentence, and then the verb and all its stuff. So ...

What's the subject and what's the verb here? The predicate will be the verb and all the other words to the end of the sentence.

Let me know what you think, and I'll let you know if you're right.

In the given sentence, "One African bird is named the honey guide," the subject is "One African bird" and the verb is "is named."

The predicate, therefore, is the verb "is named" and the noun phrase "the honey guide" that follows the verb. So, the predicate in this sentence is "is named the honey guide."

To identify the predicate of a sentence, it is important to understand the structure of the sentence. The subject typically comes before the verb, and the verb is followed by the predicate. In this case, "is named" is the verb, and "the honey guide" is the predicate.
