    She was crowned the queen.-Can you please explain this sentence.

    Also Our cat lived till he was 10.-Intrasitive right.Can I have your email id pl mam.I need help with few sentences in this topic.

    • Manjusha says:

      She was crowned queen is the passive form of They crowned her queen. Here crowned is transitive and its object is her.
      Lived is intransitive in the second sentence. Lived, died, slept, sat, jumped, ran, swam are all intransitives.
