Select the letter of the term that correctly identifies the function of
the word or phrase in parentheses in the following sentence:
The world's supply of fossils and rocks is (limited).
a. direct object
b. indirect object
c. object complement
d. predicate nominative
e. predicate adjective
The verb to be cannot take an object. That rules out a, b, c
Now limited is an adjective describing the supply of fossils, so e is the correct answer.

A predicate nominative basically renames the subject
Example John was made president of the company
Both John and President refer to the same person
Cycling is a great hobby.
Both cycling and hobby refer to the same activity
