If two names or pronouns that are bound by „or,“ „still,“ „either“ and „ni-or“ are of a different person, the verb agrees with the subject closest to it, since you or I are right. It`s not her fault, it`s not your fault. 10. If two individual names refer to the same person or the same thing and the article is used only once before the first name, the singular verb is used as a black and white cow to graze. (A partly black and partly white cow) Let us remember what we have learned about the agreement between subjects and verbs. In the seven sentences given above, the respective verbs „write,“ „cross,“ „read,“ „kill,“ „create,“ „gave“ and „sell“ need their respective objects to make the sentences meaningful.
So all these verbs are transitory verbs. Few other „transitive verbs“ are: build, wear, start eating, eating, choosing, eating, finding, forgetting, feeding, drinking, drinking, dealing, clinging, giving, grinding, holding, doing, climbing, lending, knowledge, learning, winning, stealing, weaving, closing, distributing, etc. 15.

Some names are plural in appearance, but singular in use. They take the singular verb, because mumps is a painful disease. They brought the suitcase back for two days.
Here, the verb „brought“ (bring) needs an object to become useful. What was brought in? They brought the suitcase. The verb „bring“ (brought) is therefore a transitive verb. My father wrote a book that you might be interested in. We cross the river by boat. The child reads English poems, an uncivilized man killed John Kennedy. She created this structure for our proposed home. My teacher gave me a pen before entering the exam room. They`re selling their properties.
1. Transitive Word: Examples: Mr. Hales takes class this morning. With these sentences, Mr. Hales takes the class. Here we go. The word „Mr. Hales“ is Nov. The word „class“ is the object. The word „takes“ is the verb. It is only when the three words are there that all sentences become complete and meaningful. In the event that the object word is not there, the phrase „Mr.
Hales takes“ makes no sense and the sentences are not complete. In this case, „What is Mr. Hales taking?“ is not clear. It is only when the verb „takes“ receives an object that the meaning behind the verb „takes“ becomes complete. This means that the verb „takes“ needs an object to make itself complete. Such a verb, which requires an object, is called a transitory verb. This means that the effect of the verb is transferred to another noun or something else. 11. If two themes together express an idea, the verb that follows them is unique, because bread and butter are my favorite breakfast.
