Are both my and car subject here?. Now what can I write his cars gives/ give good mileage? and what is indirect object?According to the terminology I am accustomed to use:
In both sentences, 'my car' is the subject.
In both sentences 'good mileage' is the direct object.
In the second sentence, 'me' is the indirect object.
'Car' by itself is the subject. 'My' describes the car. You may call it a 'modifier' or an 'adjective', or perhaps something else. I don't know what terms you use.Are both my and car subject here?. Now what can I write his cars gives/ give good mileage? and what is indirect object?
a word that comes before a noun or a noun phrase including the articles (a, an, and the), demonstratives (this, that, these, and those), possessives(my, your, his, her, our, their), as well as the following: all, both, half, several, some, any, no, each, every, enough, either, neither, much, many, more, most, little, less, least, few, what, whatever, which, whichever.
I am a bit confused . What I have understood is that, an object is one on which an action is performed. Now here on mileage what kind of action is being performed?'Car' by itself is the subject. 'My' describes the car. You may call it a 'modifier' or an 'adjective', or perhaps something else. I don't know what terms you use.
Your more recent sentence works the same way:
His cars give/get good mileage.
Cars is the subject; mileage is the object.
There is no indirect object.
I took a walk = I is the subject and walk is the object. I drew a cat = I is the subject and cat is the object. I had a shower= what is the object here?'Object' is a grammatical label. The range of meanings associated with an object is rather wide. It includes something that is acted upon, but it also includes something that comes about as a result of the action ('I drew a cat', 'I had a shower', 'I took a walk') or something that is passed on.
