You're close!

By the way, it's not very useful to break down sentences this finely on the GMAT. You should be able to find the main subject and main verb, and identify any modifiers in the sentence. Beyond that, you'll probably spend more time than it's worth doing this.

'Sally' is the subject of this sentence.

'was' is the main verb.

'was jealous of Lisa's new dress' is something called a predicate. The predicate is basically everything in the sentence except for the subject.

If you break down the predicate further, it contains an adjective ('jealous') and a prepositional phrase ('of Lisa's new dress').

The prepositional phrase is an adjectival modifier: it tells you more about the specific way in which Sally was jealous.

ccooley ... thank you so much for your reply. My purpose in dissecting the sentences is to help me absorb the recognition of subject/verb/objects etc.....and get used to the terminology.

I sincerely hope its ok to post such stuff

regards
