I need help understanding direct and indirect objects in a sentence. The sentence is Several players gave him a pat on the back.
I have to identify the direct object and indirect object. I think the direct object is him and the indirect object is pat. I can convert the sentence to read Several players gave a pat on the back to him.
Am I correct? Just want to be sure I understand the concept before I do the rest.
I'm not a teacher
You have it actually the wrong way round ;
I hope it helps
