|An intransitive verb can stand alone in the predicate because its meaning is complete.|
The plant grows.
The mouse squeaked.
The cat will run.
A transitive verb needs a direct object to complete its meaning. The meaning of a sentence with a transitive verb is not complete without a direct object.
Both transitive and intransitive verbs can be in the past, present or future tense.
Directions: Choose if the underlined word is a transitive or an intransitive verb.
