direct vs. indirect object
Ex. from above: Ils ont réussi à la convaincre. Subject They/verb succeeded - requires preposition à before infinitive verb convaincre to convince?
I am wondering why "la" direct object is used here instead of "lui" please? Merci!
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate regular -ir verbs (+ avoir) in Le Passé Composé (conversational past)"
Ils ont réussi à la convaincre. -- They succeeded in convincing her.
"La" is the direct object of "convaincre": convaincre quelqu'un -- to convince somebody.
