An indirect object is the recipient of a verb in a sentence. For instance, if you said “My mother gave the cat to me”, me would be the indirect object. Why? Because it answers the question “to whom was the cat given”? The cat is the direct object because it answers the question “what was given?”. SingularPlural me --- menos --- us te --- you (familiar) le --- you (formal), him, herles --- you all, them
