    I think you mean transitive or intransitive, right?

    Transitive verbs can have direct objects after them; intransitive ones cannot.

    Jack ate the hamburger.
    ("ate" = transitive; "hamburger" = direct object)

    I was so surprised that I nearly fell over.
    ("fell" = instransitive; no direct object)

    Read that sentence again and see what you find. Is there a direct object there? If so, what's the verb?
