A sentence expresses a complete thought. Every sentence has two important parts: the subject and the predicate. A sentence that does not have both a subject and predicate is incomplete. It is a sentence fragment.

Subjects

The subject tells whom or what the sentence is about. 
The complete subject is all the words in the subject part. 
The simple subject is the main word or words in the complete subject.
