Some theory to remember before we embark on this issue.

1. An object is a noun that is acted upon by a subject through some action. Therefore, an object has to be essentially a noun.
All objects are part of the predicate while all predicates are not objects and may include many diverse things such as adjectives, adverbs complements, adjuncts etc.

A prepositional phrase will normally contain an object as the object of the preposition. This is the easiest way to spot an object (one can see a preposition just before the object).
Example: on the treadmill, in the evening, in Delhi.

Very often one can find an adverb such as "where" as part of the predicate to describe a place of action or 'when' as an adverb of time ( Ex; days ago, daily) or "how" as an adverb of manner- Ex: slowly, hastily.

In the below sentences, what are the objects of the sentence?

1) Amy runs on the treadmill--- object of preposition
2) Amy runs daily -- adverb
3) Amy runs in the evening -- object of prepositions
4) Amy runs in Delhi -- object of preposition
5) Amy died 10 days ago- adverb of time.

The above theory is IMO
