    All of your answers are correct except for 2 and 5.

    2. He wants a place on the U.S. swim team in the next Olympic games. (direct object -- place; indirect object -- team)
    There is no indirect object. "Team" is the object of the prepostion "on."

    5. Such intense training could limit his social activities. (direct object -- activities; indirect object -- training)
    The subject is "training."
