My Ques: How to identify the subject?I picked aramaic script.
How to identify subject:
Subject is a noun or pronoun, which is talked about in a sentence. It is usually the doer of action. It can appear at the beginning of the sentence or at the end
He works at IBM – He is the subject because we talk about “he” and “he” does the work
Here comes the BMW car – We are talking about BMW car and hence “BMW car” is the subject.
The sentence talks about the following:
1) The subject The Achaemenid empire of Persia
2) Two actions performed simultaneously by the above subect:
a) reached the Indus Valley
b) brought with it the Aramaic script
As 2b is happenining simultaneously with 2a, verb + ing (bringing) is used in the sentence
3) Subject Northern and southern Indian alphabets
4) Action performed by the above subject
Derive from Aramaic script
Sentences 3 and 2b are connected using “from which”. Thus “from which” clearly identifies Aramaic script.
