In the given options, "Noun, Pronoun, Phrase Or Clause" is the correct answer because these are the types of words or groups of words that can function as the direct object in a sentence.

    B. What

    In this question, the words "The", "Follow", and "And" cannot be direct objects because they are either articles or conjunctions.

For example, in the sentence "She saw the man," "man" is the direct object of the verb "saw" because it receives the action of seeing.

    The line of dialogue "It Will Storm," Dad Said is punctuated correctly because it follows the standard rules of punctuation for dialogue.

It helps to separate the introductory phrase or clause from the list, making it easier for the reader to understand the structure of the sentence.
