    My options are: a. simple predicate b. complete predicate c. compound predicate d. none of the above I think it's complete predicate but I'm not sure.

    did find would be your simple predicate.....if the words underlined were : did find their way across the pacific ocean, then it would be complete predicate.

    a simple predicate just consists of the verb and nothing else
