In the seven sentences given above, the respective verbs “write,” “cross,” “read,” “kill,” “create,” “gave” and “sell” need their respective objects to make the sentences meaningful. So all these verbs are transitory verbs. Few other “transitive verbs” are: build, wear, start, bear, eat, choose, eat, find, forget, feed, drink, drink, deal, hang on, give, give, have, hold, ride, lend, know, learn, win, fly, weave, close, distribute, etc. An English verb may be regular or irregular. Regular verbs form their post-participatory forms and past by the addition. When we build a sentence, verb and subject must correspond in number and in person. Thus, if the subject is singular number, the first person, the verb must be singular number. If the subject has the plural number, the third person, the verb must be plural number.

Here, the verb “brought” (bring) needs an object to become useful.
