An indirect object is usually the receiver of the direct object. The direct object is "flowers". Ask yourself - who is receiving the direct object?
Example of direct/indirect objects in action: I gave Jamie a hug. What is the direct object? The ball. So, the indirect object is the lady :)
Ohhhhh! Thanks so much! :)
now i get it!
You're welcome! :)
so if i had a question that said The president told his advisers about his new policies. then will the indirect object be president?
Actually, his advisors would be the indirect object. The advisors are receiving the information about the new policies. The president is the one supplying the information
i think i get it now.
If the sentence was "The advisors told the president about their new policies", then the indirect object would be president, since he is receiving information from the advisors.
but can you just help me with two more just for me to get used to it?
If you need me to explain anything further, just ask, I'm here to help :)
Which word in the sentence is the indirect object? Some computer games teach players useful lessons. A. lessons B. computer C. games D. players

Yes! You're right! :) Players is the indirect object, because the players are receiving the lessons from the game
thanks! :) next question..
Which words make up the compound indirect object in the sentence? The coach has read the athletes and parents the new rules. Choose all answers that are correct. A. coach B. athletes C. parents D. rules
i think its athletes and parents
Yep! Because the coach is the one who read the parents/athletes the new rules, therefore the parents/athletes are receiving information.
