Direct Objects

direction1A Direct Object is the noun or phrase that receives the action that is performed by the subject.  It answers the “who” or “what” after an action verb.

For example: Bob crashed the car.  What did Bob crash?  The car.  So, “the car” is the direct object in the original sentence.

You can also have mulitple direct objects in a sentence, for instance: Bob hit the motorcycle and the truck.  What did Bob hit?  The motorcycle and the truck.  So, “the motorcycle” and “the truck” are the direct objects.
