    If there is a direct object, it's transitive.

    If there isn't a direct object, it's not.

    Let us know what you think.

    You can also determine transitive or intransitive by looking up the word in a good dictionary.

    Since "rose" is the past tense of "rise," I looked up "rise" at http://www.dictionary.com -- http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/rise

    If it indicates "t." or "used with object," then it's transitive.

    If it indicates "it." or "i." or "used without object," then it's intransitive.
