Notes On Parts of a Sentence - CBSE Class 8 English Grammar
Subject and Predicate
The subject of a complete sentence is who or what the sentence is about, and the predicate tells about that subject.
Example:
Sneha sang a song

Sneha  is the subject of the sentence, because the sentence is telling something about Sneha. And what is it telling? It says that Sneha sang a song. So in this example the subject is “Sneha” and the predicate is “Sang a song.”

To determine the subject of a sentence, first find the verb and then ask “who?” or “what?” In this sentence, the verb is “sang.” If we ask, “who sang?” the answer is, “Sneha sang.” This is how we know that “Sneha” is the subject of the sentence.The subject of a sentence includes the noun or pronoun along with all the words that modify, or describe it.
