We all enjoyed the play that you wrote.

Thomas Edison, whose accomplishments are legendary, will be our focus next week.

    I did one for you. Now it's your turn. What do you think the functions of the pronouns are in these sentences? I'll be glad to check your answers.

    1. "that you wrote" is the direct object of the subject "you"

    2. "whose accomplishments are legendary" is the subject of "Thomas Edison

    3. "whom we know" is the object of the preposition "about"

    1. No. Subjects don't take direct objects; only verbs have direct objects. You're right that it's a direct object -- but for which verb?

    2. No. Check this site.
