One uses the direct object pronoun (dop) to avoid repetition. The dop replaces the ¨noun¨ that was mentioned. Then, place the dop before the verb, attached to the infinitive form of the verb or attached to the gerund (-ing = -ando, -iendo, yendo forms in Spanish) : A. Identify the noun and substitute with de dop: 1. dos refrescos = los refrescos Mi hermano los bebe. 2. dinero = el dinero (¨el¨ becomes "lo") Nosotros lo recibimos. 3. una manzana = la manzana Quiero comerla 4. ¿Puedes escuchar la música? = la música ¿Puedes escucharla? 5. Estoy estudiando las palabras. Estoy estudiándolas (notice the accent in the gerund ¨estudiándolas¨.
