    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.

    Next you have to ask is told what? That gives you the direct object.

    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 ??

    Anna is the IO so is an indirect object basically asking who vs what when asking for a DO

    But if there is no direct object, then there cannot be an indirect object
