  • Intransitive verbs are verbs that help answer the question when, where, how or why.

  • The missing word here is to, ah, Proposition and to class answers the question Where now look closely at the other example.

  • I am going the morning.

  • The missing word here is en also a proposition and in the morning answers the question when, with intransitive verbs, there is no who or what.
