    subjects are joined by a conjunction and share the same verb. The compound

    subject is underlined in each sentence.

    ➲ A compound predicate (verb) is two or more verbs that are joined by

    a conjunction and share the same subject. The compound predicates are

    underlined in each sentence.

    Hearing the exciting announcement, the audience members

    loudly cheered and whistled.


    Note: In the sentence, ‘‘Renata waxed her car, and then she parked it in the

    garage,’’ the two verbs waxed and parked are not compound predicates (or

    verbs) since they do not share the same subject. Renata and she (though

    the same person) are different subjects (in different parts of the same

    sentence).
