  1. how about this sentence: I gave you a message from Tom, can you identify what is the D.O and I.O in above sentence. thank you.

  2. It is still an I.O. even at the end of a prep. phrase. This was very confusingly-worded for my kids, so I had to watch others to help them truly understand it.

  3. What would be the object(s) in the sentence:
    She threw her Halloween candy under the bed so her sister wouldn't get to it.
    THANK YOU KHAN ACADEMY!
    You've saved my life

  4. Seriously I cannot thank this channel or website enough. You break things down so well to a level a 1rst grader could understand 10th grade stuff!

  5. I've watched enough of your videos to know you don't respond to comments, but I think your videos are awesome! The explanations are simple and well explained.

  6. What would a name at the beginning of a sentence be considered when it's separated by a comma and followed by a independent clause?

    Specifically, in the sentence, "Luke, I am your father." My gut reaction tell's me that "Luke" is the subject of that sentence, but since it is not related to the predicate "am," I don't think it can be. In this case, is "Luke" acting as the direct object, or is it something else entirely?

    Side note, I know that's not the actual quote from the movie, just thought it was a good example.

  7. I have a doubt: If I give a sentence – Ram killed Ravana. Here Ram is subject and Ravana be an object, eventhough Ravana is a noun?

  8. Let me help y’all

    First for d.o
    Get the subject and the verb, then ask (the verb) what? Or (the verb) whom?
    IE:
    Carl gives John the microphone
    The verb is gives(the verb must be an action verb)
    Carl gives what?
    Carl gives the microphone
    Microphone is the D.O
    Now for the I.O
    You ask (the verb) for what or to what or for whom or to whom
    Carl gives the mic to whom?
    Carl vices the mike to John

    Note IO can’t be in the end of the sentence

    Thanks
    John gives

  9. Subject = who
    Indirect object = where
    Direct object= what
    Who threw a frisbee? Althea.
    Where was it thrown? To me.
    What was thrown? A frisbee.

  10. I thought a d.o was called this because it's the object that comes directly after the verb. Frisbee in your sentence doesn't come directly after the verb. Also the i.o me, in the same sentence surely must become the direct object. Is the indirect object ALWAYS the recipient and answers to whom and the thing ALWAYS the object that answers to what? I wasnt sure if the recipient could be the d.o if it comes after the verb. I hope this makes sense.

  11. Question: If for example the sentence changed to "Chris ate cereal at the table" is "table" the indirect object? Or is it just part of a prepositional dependent clause? Or both? :3

  12. why do Youtube channels like these explain better than a teacher
    yay i have a test tomorrow September.17,2019 but nobody cares

  13. A noun functions as an object of a verb when it comes after an action verb and receives the action of the verb. A noun functioning as an object of a verb in a sentence will always be the recipient of an action. Example: Tom slapped Jerry.
