    Default Why do you think that?

    Hello, Here in this sentence, how can I see the part of speech of "that". In my sense, it sounds like an adverb like "so", but some teachers say it is a determiner, so I am really confused. If it is a determiner, is it possible to say "why do you think those?" And as far as I know, the verb "think" is an intransitive verb. Am I right? Please enlighten me again.

    Think | Define Think at Dictionary.com

    "Think" can be transitive or intransitive.

    We don't think "those," however.
