  1. In a nutshell, direct objects answer whom or what after the verb.

    Examples of direct objects (boldfaced):

    I hit him.
    Logan did his homework.

    Indirect objects tell to or for whom or what after the vert.

    Examples of indirect objects (italicized):

    We gave her our opinions.
    Please tell the teacher the answer.
