How did the deer drink milk from the gourd?
When Jody poured the milk into the gourd, the fawn butted and bleated frantically, with his eyes wide open. The smell of the milk made the fawn crazy but he didn’t know how to drink it. Jody helped him by dipping his fingers into the milk and then putting his fingers into the fawn’s mouth. The fawn also sucked Jody’s fingers and was enjoying the milk very much Then Jody slowly brought his hands down into the gourd which brought the mouth of the fawn also into the gourd. After that the fawn drank the milk on its own.

Look at these two sentences.
He tumbled backward.
It tuned its head.
The first sentence has an intransitive verb, a verb without an object. The second sentence has a transitive verb. It has a direct object. We can ask: “What did it turn?” You can answer. “Its head. It tuned its head.”
Say whether the verb in each sentence below
is transitive or intransitive. Ask yourself a
‘what’ question about the verb, as in the
example above. (For some verbs, the object is
a person, so ask the question ‘who’ instead of ‘what’).
