2 Direct object pronouns The object that directly receives the action of the verb is called the direct object.The direct object answers the question "what?" or "whom?" with regard to what the subject of the sentence is doing.When the pronoun replaces the name of the direct object, use the following pronouns:In sentences with two verbs, there are two options regarding the placement of the direct object pronoun.1. Place it immediately before the conjugated verb.2. Attach it directly to the infinitive.DOPNsSingularPlural1st personMe= ________Us = ________2nd PersonYou = ________3rd personHim = ________Her = ________You/It = ________Them (m) _______Them (fem) _____Y’all ___________nosmeteloloslalasLo/laLos/las

Remember, the IO tells us where the DO is going.Sometimes the direct object is not stated; rather it is implied, or understood.
