When I studied EIKEN Grade 1 exam, a kind of English examination in Japan, I could not understand which word is the verb.
The sentence is below.
Furthermore, the raw, naturalistic acting the Method elicited proved perfectly matched to the art of filmmaking, with its revealing close-up shots.
From EIKEN Grade 1 2012-1 Stanislavski and the Craft of Acting
Which is the verb in this sentence? Elicited, proved or matched?
What part of speeches are "elicited," "proved" and "matched" in this sentence?
I thought the sentence is more understandable if the sentence is changed to below one.
Furthermore, the raw, naturalistic acting (the Method elicited) proved perfectly (it was) matched to the art of filmmaking, with its revealing close-up shots.
