A complement completes the verb. It is similar to the subject because it is usually a noun or noun phrase; however, it generally follows the verb when the sentence is in the active voice. Note: Every sentence does not require a complement. The complement cannot begin with a preposition. A complement answers the question what? Or Whom?

Examples of Complements:
Fahim brought a cake yesterday. (What did Fahim buy?)
He wants to drink some water. (What does he want to drink?)
They called Robin yesterday. (Whom did they call yesterday?)
He was smoking a cigarette. (What was he smoking?)
