Answer A transitive verb is a verb that requires an object. Example: John surfed the internet. In this sentence the internet is the direct object of s…urfed. So surf is a transitive verb in this sentence. Caution! Some verbs may be transitive in one sentence, but intransitive (not taking an object) in another. For example: Jill spent the afternoon surfing. In this sentence surfing has no object, so surf is an intransitive verb in this sentence.
Actually, yes, a verb can be transitive and intransitive depending on the sentence. The verb eat, for example, is transitive in this sentence: "I ate an apple," but is intran…sitive in this one: "Lindsay already ate." Other verbs can be both as well, such as "play," "clean," and "read." Verbs are transitive when they precede a direct object, and they are intransitive when they do not.
It can be either - for example: # Jim's appetite is better and he is eating well. (Intrans). # Anne ate her supper. (Trans).

For intransitive verbs, you put that word in the blanks>. ____ something or ____ someone. If it makes sense, then its a transitive verb, if it doesn't its an intransitive verb….
