    A predicate adjective is an adjective that follows a linking verb and modifies (i.e., refers back to) the subject of the linking verb. A predicate adjective contrasts with an attributive adjective, which typically sits immediately before the noun it modifies. A example is: The shoes look expensive. 'The shoes' is the subject. 'Look' is the linking verb. 'Expensive' is the predicate adjective.

    first find the complete predicate.... " is green " a predicate adjective is an adjective in the predicate the describes the subject. So, the subject is " skin "......GREEN SKIN.... the predicate adj is green as it is found in the predicate and it describes the skin as being green.
