example modifier and complement
Objective is a non-example of subjective.
When someone calls on the phone and asks "Is Greg there?", I may answer "This is he." The "he" in that example is a subject complement (note "complement" spelled with "e" after "l", not "i"). "Complement" is a grammatical term for a word or phrase that completes some phrase (and complements the head of that phrase). In the preceding example, "he" completes the verb phrase, or predicate, "is he". "He" refers to the subject "this" and is also the subject form of the pronoun (as against the object form "him"), so I guess that's why it's called a "subject" complement, though, I admit, this part of the terminology is not completely clear to me. It might also make sense to call that "he" a "subjective complement of be".

The subject is the noun or pronoun that is doing or being something in the sentence. Examples: Mary walks five miles to work each day. "Mary" is the subject; "walks" is the verb. She is very athletic. "She" is the subject; "is" is a linking verb connecting the subject to the subject complement.
