    How could we say it is a "object" by the definition?

    The Object is a noun or a pronoun that receives an action in a sentence. There are three types namely Diect object,Indirect object and Object of a preposition.

    Both direct object and indierct obect receives the action in a sentence. But I have a doubt in "object of a preposition". If there is no receiving action in "the object of the preposition" then how could we say it is a "object" by the definition?

    In English grammar, an object is a noun, noun phrase, or pronoun that is affected by the action of a verb (a direct object or an indirect object) or that completes the meaning of a preposition (the object of a preposition).
