What is the verb phrase in the sentence? The boys will not be at practice this afternoon. A. The boys B. at practice C. will not be D. will be

2 Answer

  • The word 'be' is the verb. For the future you can put the word "to" in front of a word to check if it is a verb, in this case it is 'to be' 
  • I would go with C. but have a look online at syntax trees and it may help your understanding a little more.
