The direct object pronoun answers "whom" or "what" after the verb.

Quiero el libro. What do you want? el libro Necesito un lapiz. What do you need? the pencil

The direct object pronouns mirror the articles except for el which becomes lo.

Marcos compra la pluma. La compra.

Sara come las uvas. Las come.

Marcos lleva las pantalones. Las lleva.

Yo quiere el pastel. Lo quiere.

I hope this helps along with the video and the reference section.
