Anonymousi dont get direct objects, indirect objects, and objects of prepositions. i need serious help,
A direct object is a noun or pronoun that receives the action of a verb or shows the result of the action. It answers the question "What?" or "Whom?" after an action verb.
An indirect object comes before the direct object and tells to whom or for whom the action of the verb is done and who is receiving the direct object. There must be a direct object to have an indirect object. Indirect objects are usually found with verbs of giving or communicating like give, bring, tell, show, take, or offer. An indirect object is always a noun or pronoun which is not part of a prepositional phrase.
A preposition links a noun or a pronoun (this is the object of the preposition) with some other word or expression in the sentence.

An indirect object comes either before or after the direct object.
(1) I gave him a pen. (The indirect object 'him' comes before the direct object 'a pen')
(2) I gave a pen to him. (The indirect object 'him' comes after the direct object 'a pen').
