If you want me to help, tag me.
first, tell me the subject
the twins and their brother
that is not the subject.....this is a command and the subject, although not written, is YOU. Now can you tell me the verb
An indirect object is the recipient of the direct object.
OK, you can immediately eliminate twins.
can you tell me the verb ?
So, with twins marked out there is only three answers left.
correct... subject -- you verb -- tell direct object -- tell what ? what are you telling ?
Next you have to ask is told what? That gives you the direct object.
Wait...I take back my statement about twins.
story ...so we can cross tht out
I believe the its story
correct...story is your direct object. indirect object -- who are you telling it to ?
twins and who else ?
B brother sorry i thought i pushed the post button
correct...indirect objects are twins, and brother But remember this, you have to have a direct object to have an indirect object
I know what an direct object is. Can you tell me what an indirect object is. In your words....
An indirect object object tells you who or what is receiving the direct object examples : I told Tammy a secret. I = subject told = verb Tammy = indirect object secret = direct object An indirect object will be between the action verb and the direct object. make sense ??
oops...too many objects in there...lol
could you give me another sentence to practice on, please?
Mary gave Anna the keys to the car ?
I didn't mean to put that question mark there..
Anna is the IO so is an indirect object basically asking who vs what when asking for a DO
oh, okay. Got it. Thank you! ^.^
But if there is no direct object, then there cannot be an indirect object
hope I helped :)
