Read each sentence then write each transitive verb. if a sentence has no transitive verb(direct object) write none.

7 and 10 are wrong. The others are right.

7. love transitive
I don't know 10 is it none?
English - Ms. Sue, Monday, October 8, 2012 at 8:14pm
7 is correct.
10 -- the verb is ran and you're right it is not transitive -- so "none" is the right answer.

Can you explain how 10 is none and 7 isnt
English - Ms. Sue, Monday, October 8, 2012 at 8:24pm
You can often find the direct object by asking WHAT after the verb.
7. I love -- WHAT? -- sunny days
Love is transitive since it has a direct object -- days.
10. Cheetah ran -- WHAT?
Ran is not transitive since nothing answers the question WHAT? There is no direct object.
