    Smile verb that requires object and complement?

    I am not sure if i have to add to be, for example,
    i think him a good teacher or i think him to be a good teacher.
    i belive him a good teacher or i belive him to be a good teacher.
    i consider him a good teacher or i consider him to be a good teacher.

    what about the following sentences?
    I think him honest or i think him to be honest.
    i belive him honest or i belive him to be honest.

    lastly, can i say like this?

    I saw him scolded by his parents. does it make sense?

    Again I am looking forward to seeing your response. Thanks always!!!!!!!!!!
