    Okay, a predicate adjective modifies the subject of the sentence and is connected to the subject by a linking verb. What is the subject in this sentence?

    No. What are the fall plants doing? What state of being are they?

    Good. So the specific word here is "were". Now the way this works is subject-verb-predicate adjective. So you've already defined it. So what is your adjective?

    But you want the predicate adjective not just the adjectives. So your answer is orange becasue it follows the linking verb.

    I'm sorry it says you can choose multiple. So its orange and brown, because the both follow. Fall does not.
