Notes
1. Alternatively, the "have met" clause can be considered the main clause, and the "said" clause can be explained as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
2. "Equal" is a retained predicate adjective after the passive "are created." See KISS Level 5.7 - Passive Voice and Retained Complements.
3. KISS explains this type of clause as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
4. The entire quotation is, of course, the direct object of "answered," but the key word in the quotation is "terms"--all the other words chunk to it. The "but" phrase is adverbial because it modifies "no."
