Answer:

The compound object of a preposition is when the object (a noun or pronoun) following a preposition is more than two objects.

Explanation:

This does not mean the object of the preposition is a plural word. It means that the object is two or more items. For instance, Yesterday we went to the park, library, and grocery store. The prepositional phrase is "to the park, library, and grocery store." The preposition is "to." The compound object of the preposition is "park, library, and grocery store."
