Rule (1): कुछ Transitive verbs जैसे, give, ask, offer, promise, tell etc दो object लेते है जिनमे एक Indirect object और दूसरा direct object होता है. व्यक्ति सूचक शब्द को Indirect object कहा जाता है तथा वस्तुसुचक शब्द को direct object कहा जाता है. Indirect object का प्रयोग direct object के पहले होता है. अर्थात Direct object का प्रयोग Indirect object के बाद होता है. जैसे: -

  Subject Verb Indirect object Direct object
1. She gave me an apple
2. The teacher told us a story
3. I offered him some money
4. He promised us a holiday
5. She asked me its price
6. Will you make me a cup of tea?
7. Can you get me a dozen eggs?
