Object of the sentence

Postby mentarget » Tue Oct 30, 2012 4:15 pm

Dear Alan,
From the sentence below, I think that "He" is the subject of the verb "reacts", Am I right to say that "danger" is the object?
He reacts bravely in face of danger.

It is the object of the preposition 'of'.

(N.B. --> in the face of danger)
