Direct and Indirect Objects

Direct and indirect objects play important roles in sentences. So, it’s important that you can identify them.

So, first, let’s take a look at direct objects. Direct objects are basically the receiver of the action of a sentence. So, the verb is telling what’s going on, and the direct object is telling who that action is occurring to.

So, take a look at this sentence to see what I mean:

He sold his car.”

So, the verb right here is “sold“. Okay. So, what is being sold in this sentence? The “car” is being sold, so I’m going to write “DO” above it, okay, because it’s called a direct object. So, “DO” stands for “direct object“. “He sold his car.” “Car” is the direct object.
