    Default Transitive...

    The report claimed that the rogue nation was stocking up nuclear weapons.

    In the above sentence, is "claimed" a "transitive" verb? I don't see any direct object of "claimed".

    Thanks,

    The direct object is the clause starting with 'that' and ending with 'weapons'.

    EDIT: Please wait for a teacher's advice, altough I am pretty sure my answer is correct
