1) Sally emailed me.
sub:sally
verb: emailed
object pronoun:me. (emailed whom? me)

2) The merchant offered him a good deal.
sub: the merchant
verb: offered
object: a good deal (offered what ? a good deal)
object pronoun: him

Are the above two sentences correct? My doubt in the second sentence is we have " object" and object pronoun". Is that right ?
As per Gmatclub grammar book, A complement (object) provides more information about the verb.A complement (object) answers the question what? or whom?

The sentences are both correct. Part of your confusion may be on account of the fact that the sentences have slightly different structures. In the first sentence, there is what is termed a "direct object". The second sentence, however, employs an "indirect object". In both of these sentences, the basic idea is the same; a subject performs a verb on/to/for/with regard to an object.
