What is a Transitive verb?

A transitive verb is a verb that requires an object to receive the action.


She played the guitar.
Sam will catch five fish.
She will eat pizza.
Ali plays tennis.
Sara bought a lot of chicks.

Intransitive Verbs: An intransitive verb does not take an object. If we use an object after an intransitive verb, the sentence will be grammatically incorrect. However, there may be other information after the Verb, such as prepositional phrases or an adverb.

Examples: Hira laughed. The patient collapsed soon after the surgery. A falcon soared elegantly overhead. May I come in? The cricket match starts in the morning.

The main difference between transitive and intransitive verbs is that if a sentence has a transitive verb it can be changed into passive voice but if a sentence has an intransitive verb it cannot be changed into passive voice.
