    Note, this question is asking for the predicate, not the subject. If it asked for the subject, you would be correct in saying girl, but it does not, unfortunately

    Okay, so remember how to find the subject? In order to find the subject, you look for the verb. When it comes to a simple predicate, your verb is just that. Girl is the subject here, and the simple predicate is walks. The girl walks

    no cause a is an adjective

    The reason it wouldn't be slowly, is because slowly is just an adverb. The verb is the important one. If you said "The girl slowly" and left it there, you'd get so confused. That's why "The girl walks" makes more sense. At least then you know what she did
