Reach each sentence then underline the intransitive verb. If a sentence has no intransitive verb write none.
1. Tell Rover to lie down and relax.
Lie and down intransitive
2.Lay your cards on the table. none
3.A squirrel got trapped in our attic trapped intransitive
4. I walked all the way to the lake
5.That looks like fun! none
6. my internent connection crashed again
7.gina crashed her go cart
8. I watched a bluebird rise into the sky

9. did you know that warm air rises

1. is tricky. The verb is tell and the subject is the understood subject You.
You tell WHAT? -- Rover
This is a transitive verb.
7, 8, and 9 are also wrong.

What do I do in 7,8,9? On 9 is it none?
- English - Ms. Sue, Monday, October 8, 2012 at 9:06pm
Yes. The verbs in 7 and 8 are transitive verbs. The verb in the independent clause in 9 is did know. The dependent clause is the direct object -- making it a transitive verb.

so 7,8,9 are none since they are transitive
