Transitive and Intransitive Verbs Worksheet
As you may know, transitive verbs act on an object. For example, in the sentence “he played the piano”, the verb “played” corresponds to the object “the piano”.
But for intransitive verbs, these types of verbs don’t relate to any objects. For example, in the sentence “she slept all day”, the verb “slept” doesn’t coincide with any type of object.
So let’s put these concepts into practice with this transitive and intransitive verbs worksheet. Is it a transitive verb (T) or intransitive verb (I)?
