    The simple predicate is "was hoping", but the compound predicate is "was hoping to stay at the lakeside hotel during her visit," so the answer is C.

    No, it's compound.

    Was this a question for others? But he is right, it is a compound predicate.

    In linguistics, a compound verb or complex predicate is a multi-word compound that functions as a single verb. One component of the compound is a light verb or vector, which carries any inflections, indicating tense, mood, or aspect, but provides only fine shades of meaning.

    It's compound. Your thinking like a 5th grader. They all think compound things have to be two different things.

    Hoping and stay are both predicates.

    I believe it is the compound predicate. Sorry. Can't provide you back up.

    Reason is, because hoping and stay are both predicates. Henceforth, compound verb.
