i don't understand transitive and intransitive verbs. could you help?

  • Language Arts, Verbs -

    Transitive verbs have an object.

    Examples:
    I ate a hamburger.
    Sandy took a picture of the bride.


    Transitive verbs do not have an object.

    The dog ran ahead of me.
    We talked about our future.
