What is the direct object in this sentence Renaldo showed you his skateboard yesterday?
"you" "You" is the direct object of the sentence "Renaldo showed you his skateboard yesterday". This is shown by the grammaticality of a corresponding passive: "You were shown his skateboard by Renaldo yesterday", since being made subject of a passive is a good test for whether a noun phrase is a direct object. But the function of the "you" is that of indirect object, as can be seen in the related sentence "Renaldo showed his skateboard to you yesterday", which has the direct object "his skateboard", and the related passive for this sentence has the original direct object as subject: "His skateboard was shown to you by Renaldo yesterday. So, what has happened here is that the original indirect object, "to you", has be converted into a direct object, "you", which is then subject to passivization. Some speakers of English also accept the passive made by passivizing the old direct object instead of the direct object derived from the indirect object: ?"His skateboard was shown you yesterday by Renaldo".

What can you use instead of I at the beginning of a sentence?
As a basic rule, in a sentence you have to have a syntax and must have: a subject, a verb and an object. Therefore, instead of I, you can either: add an object at first: Yesterday, I feed my worm. Or, try to use other subjects yesterday, the frog was fed by me(passive speaking).You could also say he, she, they, other words for I.
