Reach each sentence then write each transitive verb. If a sentence has no transitive verb write none
I wonder why Maria looks so happy
I love sunny days like this
Julios parents just opened a restaurant downtown
My mom gave me an early birthday present today
The cheetah ran across the savannah
The first is right. The second is wrong.
You've found the verbs. Now study these sites to find the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs.
Are gave and ran right
So is only the sunny days question wrong? And for the first question is there a verb
You didn't identify whether the other verbs are transitive.
Of course the first sentence has a verb. What do you think it is?
oh 1. wonder intransitive
Yes, the verb in the first sentence is wonder. However, I was wrong, because wonder is a direct object. It's object is the dependent clause, "why Maria looks so happy."
First one is transitive?
is the second one intransitive
Why do you think it's intransitive?
Because the verb which is love isnt directing anything
