What is the transitive verb and direct object in the following sentence?
Felicia flew home from Arizona.
A transitive verb in a sentence tells what the subject is DOING. The subject is Felicia. What is she doing?
The direct object comes after the verb and receives the action of the verb. Which word is that?
I don't think this sentence has a transitive verb. Direct objects answer "what" after the verb.
Ms. Sue is correct -- there is no direct object here; therefore, there is no transitive verb.
