Complete each sentence below, using an objective pronoun. Then, tell how each pronoun is used in the sentence.
1). Skipping rope is a good form of exercise. Some athletes use (?) in their jumping.
2). My sister loves to jump rope. It gives (?) a chance to exercise and have fun.
3). My mother gave my friends and (?) a long jump rope to use for our game.
4). I taught (?) a rhyme to sing while we jumped.
5). It was hard for some of (?) to jump and sing at the same time.
My answers are:
1). It (object of preposition)
2). her(object of preposition)
3). me ( direct object)
4). them (object of preposition)
5). them (object of preposition)
All of your pronouns are correct. However, 1, 2, and 5 are not objects of prepositions.
Study this list of prepositions.
My answers for question #1,#2, and #5 are: 1). indirect object
2). direct object
5). indirect object
Am I correct?
I'm sorry, but I had a typo in my earlier response.
5. is correct. It is the object of a preposition.
1, 2, and 4 are not objects of prepositions.
Your answers for the others are still wrong.
1). Direct object
2). Indirect object
4). Direct object?
