    7 and 10 are wrong. The others are right.

  • English -

    7. love transitive
    I don't know 10 is it none?

  • English -

    7 is correct.

    10 -- the verb is ran and you're right it is not transitive -- so "none" is the right answer.

  • English -

    Can you explain how 10 is none and 7 isnt

  • English -

    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.
