4 Objective Case Pronoun An objective case pronoun acts as an object of a sentence and therefore comes in the predicate part of the sentence. It takes the action of the verb.An object pronoun can be:*A direct object*An indirect object*Object of the preposition.
5 Examples: 1. Brandon’s mom gave him a cookie Examples: 1. Brandon’s mom gave him a cookie. Him is the pronoun which functions as an indirect object in the sentence. 2. Samantha spilled milk on Clara and me. Me is the pronoun which functions as an object of the preposition.
