How do you find the subject of a sentence? The trick is to first identify the main verb of the sentence. Once you've found the verb, ask yourself the question "who or what is doing the action of the verb?" The answer is the subject.
Usually the subject is a noun or pronoun and its modifiers. Don't be put off by how insignificant the subject may look. For instance, in the sentence "it is raining," the subject is "it"!
Watch out also for instances where the verb is passive or where the subject is implied, as with an imperative verb. Finally, every clause has its own subject and verb, so a sentence can have multiple subjects.
