    I am too confused.
    Would you possibly elaborate( in details) the reason why:

    My object is to improve my English as much as possible.( this one is wrong and objective is right)

    My object is to learn English.( this one is right)

    The object of the game is to improve children's math skill.( this one is right)

    Meanwhile, I have extracted these from Longman( common errors).
