I have a question regarding subjective complement?
In the sentence below, what are the subject and subjective complement.
Thank you

Sentence: The name of my town is Herndon.

In the sentence, "Jim didn't know whether to laugh or to cry," "whether...or" are correlative conjunctions. They link the double direct object, "to laugh" and "to cry."

In the sentence, "The name of my town is Herndon," the simple subject is "name," and the subjective/predicate complement is "Herndon."

Incidentally, the COMPLETE subject is "The name of my town."
