Kinds of Verbs (Transitive and Intransitive)

English Grammar

CBSE Class 6 - 8 - English Grammar - Kinds of Verbs (Transitive and Intransitive)(#cbsenotes)(#eduvictors)

There are two kinds of a verb:
1. Transitive Verb
2. Intransitive Verb


1. Transitive Verb
A verb requires an object after it completes its sense is called a transitive verb. Transitive verb needs object otherwise the sentence does not make any sense.

e.g. The man killed a tiger.

Here the verb 'kill' is transitive. Its object is 'tiger'. Without an object, the sentence seems incomplete.

CBSE Class 6 English Grammar - Reading Comprehension - Unseen Poem-5 (#cbseNotes)


Pockets
I think of all the things I have
I like my pockets best.
Pockets hold just everything
And they give your hands a rest.
I never know just what I'll find
What special things I'll see
To put inside my pockets ~~
These are treasures just for me.
When Mommy's doing laundry though
She says sometimes it's scary
Finding rocks and frogs and beetles
And my spiders that are hairy
