simple subject is the noun or pronoun in the sentence that is doing the action.  The complete subject is the noun or pronoun in the sentence that is doing the action, PLUS the modifiers of that noun or pronoun (adjectives, for example).  For example, look at the sentence below:
 
The happy, young boy quickly ate the bread.
Simple subject: boy
Complete subject: The happy, young boy
 
simple predicate is the verb (the action) that the subject is doing.  The complete predicate is the verb (the action) PLUS the modifiers of that verb (adverbs or prepositional phrases, for example).  Look at the sentence below:
 
The happy, young boy quickly ate the bread.
Simple predicate: ate
Complete predicate: quickly ate the bread
