1. TV gives us a lot of pleasure.
2. TV gives a lot of pleasure to us.

Sentence 1 is a Sentence Pattern Four sentence. This sentence can be changed into a Sentence Pattern Three sentence as in Sentence 2. Change the direct object and the indirect object, and put the preposition 'to' before us. Then you can have a Sentence Pattern Three sentence.
Is my grammar explanation correct? Would you correct the errors, please?

asked by John
  1. I don't know what patterns you're referring to, but I think pattern four must include a direct object and an indirect object, right? And pattern three doesn't include an indirect object, but just a direct object?

    If so, then your explanation is correct.
