~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Questions below ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Direct Object:

= Ángela, ¿a qué hora debo llevarte a la escuela mañana?
= Debes llevarme a las 6:00.
(I think the answer is me, because I am asking Ángela, ¨what time should I take her to school tomorrow¨, and Ángela answered, ¨you need to take me (to school tomorrow) at 6¨)

= ¿Piensas escribir esa composición en una sola noche?
= Si, tengo que terminarla pronto porque es para mi clase a las 8:00 de la mañana.
(I think it should be la in here, because la is representing ¨esa composición¨ in this conversation)

Indirect Object:

Esos hombres no van a mandarle nada a la supervisora esta Navidad.
(I think it should be le in this question, because le is representing ¨la supervisora¨ in this sentence)

Reflexive Verbs:

Adán y yo no nos afeitamos todas las mañanas.
(I am a little bit confused about this one, I don´t know if I should use ¨nos afeitamos¨ Yes! The other choice you wrote is incorrect.)

Tú no te duermes fácilmente después de ver pel*culas de horror.
(I am having the same confusion just like in the last question. You got it right!)

Double Object Pronoun:

-- ¿Te debo veinte dólares este semestre? (question is asking 'Do I owe you ...?')
-- S*, s*. ¿te los puedes pagar hoy? (response is saying 'you can pay yourself' - it should be 'you can pay me')
(I think it should be te los in this question , ¨te¨ is an indirect object, representing for you, which is the person who is talking in the first sentence (No, 'I' is the person talking.), ¨los¨ is a direct object, representing the masculine plural noun ¨dólares¨ )

S*, mi amor, pienso cocinar un pastel de chocolate para tu cumpleaños. Pero hoy, no. Voy a preparártele en un mes, el d*a de tu cumpleaños.
(I think it should be te le in here (when the infinitive is used, the object pronouns are suffixed (not written separately), ¨te¨ is the indirect object, representing for you, which is ¨mi amor¨ in here, ¨le¨ is a direct object, representing the chocolate cake in here)

~~~~~~~~~~Questions Ended~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you so much for your reading this. I really appreciate it.
Hints given above.

I moved your post to the 'Practice & Homework' forum, since this is homework and you're practicing your Spanish.
