    The correct answer is B. Drew the sketch and painted it

    Explanation:

    In grammar, the predicate is the part of the sentence that follows the subject and contains the verb and the objects (direct, indirect) or complements of the sentence. Additionally, a predicate is considered as a compound predicate in the case it includes more than one verb along with all the words that complete the idea of the sentence. This implies in the case of "Tom drew the sketch and painted it" the subject is "Tom" and the compound predicate is " Drew the sketch and painted it " as this includes two actions or verbs and other words that act as objects of the verbs.

    A compound predicate has a subject in the sentence that is doing more than one action and is shared by two or more verbs, plus a conjunction.

    So I would say the answer is B
