    1. Give me your book, please? Is it a compound sentence or a simple sentence.
    It is just a simple sentence.

    2. Industrial revolution brought the world material comforts.
    In this sentence, Is the world adjective or an indirect object?
    "The world" is the indirect object in this sentence.
    If it is "Industrial revolution brought material comforts to the world," then you will have a clear idea.

    3. The team marched ahead of the band.
    In this sentence,Is the ahead adverb or a noun?
    "Ahead" is an adverb.

    4. You won't be have to quitting all the time.
    In this sentence, is time is the noun or an adverb?
    This sentence is wrong...
    Perhaps you intended to type
    "You won't have to be quitting all the time."

    In this case, you have to take "all the time" as a unit, and "all the time" is an adverbial phrase.
