When Japanese students learn English, they are told "English has a structure of S-V-C where number of C could be zero to two".
Japanese sentences also can be analyzed as S-V-O format. But I think it is wrong to understand Japanese in S-V-O format these days. Because S-V-O format is a way to understand western language and not for Japanese language originally.

Reason: correct "S-V-C" and "S-V-V" as "S-V-O"
