Simple predicte definition?

Are you referring to the definition to be simple or the definition of "simple predicate"? Anyway, I'm thinking that you mean the former. A simple predicate is the word that shows what is happening. In the before sentence, is is the simple predicate. "is the word that shows what is happening" is the whole predicate. A verb will not always be the simple predicate, and simple predicates will not always be 1 word.

When does a sentence have a compound subject or a compound predicate or both?

A compound subject is more than one subject (not just a single word meaning more than one). A compound predicate is more than one action by the same subject. Rarely, you may have both a compound subject and a compound predicate.Examples:"Bill and Dan are friends." "The man and his dog go running together." (compound subjects)"The writer sits and watches TV until he gets an idea." (compound predicate : sits/watches)"The child and his mother visited the park and fed animals at the zoo."(child/mother subject, visited/fed predicate)
