Subject and Object Complements Worksheets

A complement is part of the predicate of a sentence and describes either the subject of the sentence or the direct object. If it modifies the subject, it is called a subject complement. If it modifies or renames the direct object and follows it, it is called an object complement. For students, understanding how complements work in a sentence adds one more tool to their writing toolboxes. Below are our worksheets for complements.
