What is Subject?

Subject denotes the person or the thing or the place spoken of in a sentence.

Ex:  The children play cricket. / Tamil Nadu is a beautiful place. / The trees grow in the forest well.

What is Object?

Object is the answer to the question what is addressed to the verb.

Ex: I play cricket every day. (Played what? Cricket). / He studied English well. (studied what? English)

Ex: I play cricket every day. / He studied English well. / She wrote the answer correctly.
