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’).
