    If the object of a verb is separated from it by a demonstrative pronoun, it the object noun still expressed in the accusative form?

    Yes, the noun (البرقية) is said to be in apposition بدل , and should carry the same case marker as the demonstrative pronoun تلك , which is the grammatical object.

    Although السبوع is correct and also means week, the commoner form is الأسبوع.
