                          DIRECT OBJECTS OF THE VERB :

A direct object is a noun or pronoun that follows an action verb.  It completes the action of the verb.  To find a direct object, first find the verb.  Then ask whom? Or what? after the verb.  The word that answers whom? Or what? is the direct object.

Example:  Peppy played soccer all Sunday morning.

                Verb: Played

                Played what? Soccer.

The direct object is soccer.

If you cannot answer the questions whom? Or what? There are no direct object.

     Peppy is resting today.

     Peppy is resting what?

You cannot answer the question what? Thus, there is no direct object.
