### Is the missing word a direct object or an indirect object? Jason called ______ into the room.

• A.

Direct object

• B.

Indirect object

• C.

Neither / can't tell

A. Direct object
Explanation
In the given sentence, "Jason called ______ into the room," the missing word is the direct object. A direct object is a noun or pronoun that receives the action of the verb directly. In this case, the word that Jason called into the room is the direct object. Since the sentence does not provide any context or further information about what or who was called, we cannot determine the specific word that should fill the blank. However, we can conclude that the missing word would function as the direct object in the sentence.
