    Question Intransitive verb use

    Hello. My question is the following:

    In the sentence:

    "We will win."

    Is the verb "win" an intransitive verb? I mean, when a verb occurs in a sentence and if it doesn't have a direct object IN THE SENTENCE, does it mean that the verb IS an intransitive verb?

    Re: Intransitive verb use

    It is used intransitively in that sentence.

    Here it is used transitively:

    'We will win the cup'.


    Please note that a better title would have been We will win.
