    Re: transitive and intransitive

    Transitive verbs require an object; e.g., Sam broke the window. Intranstives do not require an object; e.g., Sam slept.

    Passive voice is when the verb's object becomes the verb's subject; e.g., Active: The car hit the dog. Passive: The dog was hit by the car.
