What Are Direct and Indirect Objects in Sentences?
Transition verb refers to the action that moves across to an action's verb to a receiver that is our object. It has two types of direct and indirect items. They are clauses, pronouns, phrases, noun. Ask questions such as verb whom or verb what including verb to identify the direct object. We can say direct objects a gerund or an infinitive phrase. Also, it can be a noun clause. Here are some examples based on their use: For Basic - | The unwary swimmer becomes a pray of a green crocodile. | What is prayer? | It is an unwary swimmer. | Noun swimmer is the direct object and the words that suit it. For Gerund - Alex loves repairing bikes (gerund, Do of likes) | Jennifer loves to be a writer of the best-selling novel (Do of what, infinitive phrase) For the noun clause - Melissa Kenneth hates when her elder sister makes her clean the dog pan. (noun clause, Do of hates) A noun or pronoun may be an indirect object as it doesn't receive the verb's action. Direct objects get the story of the verb. You can identify an indirect object by using the verb as a clue. The asking questions are for 'What/Whom' or 'Verb to.'
