Read the following paragraphs and in the space provided below, identify each highlighted word as a direct object, an indirect object, a predicate nominative, or a predicate adjective.
Example: I enjoy [1] cooking but it can be hard [2] work.
1. direct object
2. predicate nominative

My dad has been giving [1] me cooking [2] lessons since last summer. At first, I was [3] reluctant to tell the guys because some of them think that cooking is a girl’s [4] job. Dad told me to remind them that we guys eat [5] meals just as often as girls do. He also said that cooking is an excellent [6] way for us to do our share of the work around the house.
My first attempts tasted [7] awful, but gradually I’ve become a fairly good [8] cook. The best main dish I make is chicken stew. Although stew doesn’t require the highest grade of chicken, a good baking hen will give [9] it a much better taste. I am always very [10] careful about choosing the vegetables, too. Maybe I am too [11] picky, but I use only the best [12] ingredients. When I serve my [13] family my stew, they say it is their favorite dish.
