    So is only the sunny days question wrong? And for the first question is there a verb

  • English -

    You didn't identify whether the other verbs are transitive.

    Of course the first sentence has a verb. What do you think it is?

  • English -

    1.none intransitive

    3.opened transitive
    4.gave transitive
    5.ran transitive

  • English -

    oh 1. wonder intransitive
    2.love intransitive

  • English -

    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."

  • English -

    First one is transitive?

  • English -

    Yes.

  • English -

    is the second one intransitive

  • English -

    Why do you think it's intransitive?

  • English -

    Because the verb which is love isnt directing anything
