I need to classify each highlighted complement in the following

Resolved Question:

Susan Athena Can You Help Me

I need to classify each underlined complement in the following sentences as a direct object, an indirect object, a predicate adjective or a predicate nominative.

I put my answers down and would like for someone to check them.

1. Pamela ws the star of the play. (I put predicate nominative)

2. The guidebook gave the lost tourist the wrong directions. (I put direct obj)

3. Monet is famous for the way his paintings captured light. (I put pred. nom)

4. Manuel offered Anita some good advice. (DO)

5. Ms. Benton is our next door neighbor. (Predicate nominative)

6. Bring me the cutting board, please. (Indirect Object)

7. The box was big and awkard to handle. (Predicate Adjective)

8. The library receives many new books each week. (Direct Object)

9. Mexico celebrates its independence on September 16. (Direct Object)

10. The new president of the bank will be Ms. Morales. (Predicate Nom)

11. Angel became a professional jai alai player. (Direct Object)

12. Amelia Earhart flew her plane across the atlantic in 1932. (Direct Object)

13. The glow from the diamond is dazzling! (Predicate Adjective)

14. Thomas Edison provided people with electric light bulbs. (Direct Object)

15. New York City was briefly the capital of the United States. (Predicate Nom)

16 The simpsons showed him slides of China. (Indirect Object)

17. My chair was hard and uncomfortable. (Predicate Adjective)

18. The machine can produce two crates a day. (Direct Object)

19. Have you seen Akiho yellow sweater? (Pedicate Nom)

20. The house appeared empty. (Predicate Adject)

Now for the hard part. I just cant seem to get this when I have to pick it out of a sentence. I dont know where to start.

Write the complement or complements in each sentence. Then, identfy each complement as a direct object, indirect object a predicate nominative.Write none if the sentence does not contain a complement.

Thanks Susan for your help. I really don't know how to look at a sentence and start picking out direct object, indirects, predicate nominative, and predicate adjectives. Is there an easy way to figure this out.
