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.

I f you need more details or further examples please contact me asap.

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
