Direct And Indirect Objects Test Quiz!

Have you heard of direct and indirect objects? In the English language, there are two types of objects. These include direct and indirect objects. The central difference between the two is that direct objects are the receiver of the action while the indirect object is the direct object's receiver. A sentence must always have a direct object first for an indirect object to exist. This quiz will show you how to distinguish between direct and indirect objects.
