How would make the following sentence:
“A sentence with two appositives for the same name. Make each appositive complex (each appositive must contain a subordinate clause)”
How would I make the following sentence:
“A sentence with a single complex appositive. (This is the complex part: The subordinate clause nested within your appositive must have a triple predicate with each predicate consisting of a transitive verb, a direct object, and either participial or infinitive phrases) (hint: your phrases could be the direct objects).”
Can someone help me create this sentence and explain it as well. :)
