I think it's 'onomatopoeia': 1 : the naming of a thing or action by a vocal imitation of the sound associated with it (as buzz, hiss) 2 : the use of words whose sound suggests the sense

What is the direct object of The Criminal is adversary to the policeman?
There is no direct object. There are two types of verbs: action verbs and being verbs. Being verbs are verbs of being, they are words like "is", "am", "was", "be", and their variations, like "have been", etc. They don't have direct objects. Action verbs are all the other words, that do have actions. The object of that action is the direct object. So, if the verb is making a statement of being, then there is no direct object, and the verb is a verb of being, like "is".

What is sound in poetry?
sound in a poem can be created using onomatopoeia - words that sound like the action such as "bang" "crash". It can also be created through assonance - this is the repetition of a vowel sound in words so you get a soft s or c ect.. Sound can be created through alliteration : the snake slowly slithered- the s is the alliteration.

What are transitive and intransitive verbs?
A transitive verb is a verb that requires a direct object to complete its meaning. Basically, the verb is transferred to the direct object. For example, in the sentence,"I flipped the mattress," flipped is the transitive verb; its direct object is mattress. The mattress received the action, flipped. An intransitive verb is a verb that does not require a direct object to make sense. "In the sentence,"I fell," fell is the intransitive verb, since it does not transfer its action to a direct object. OR if you are her from a question from apex try "It is a verb that needs an object to make sense" in simpler words
