Reflexive Pronoun

# Transitive verbs :

             Verbs which requires object after them, those are known as transitive verb.

                     Children fly kites.

                              [ here fly acts as transitive verb because children fly doesn't make any sense, So noun is used to complete the sentence Those verbs which always comes along with Pronoun or noun is known as transitive verb ] 

                     Birds fly.

                      [ Here fly is not a transitive verb ]

Some verb which act as transitive verbs

  • cut 
  • kill 
  • introduce 
  • hurt 
  • eat 
  • absent 
  • hit 
  • watch 
  • avail 
  • cheat 
  • prostrate 
  • enjoy
Example :

We use a reflexive pronoun as object or complement when it refers to the same thing as the subject.The pronouns which are used with transitive verb as a object are known as reflexive pronoun.

Reflexive Pronoun are :

  • he    → himself
  • her   → herself
  • it      → itself
  • they → themselves
  • I        →  myself
  • you  → yourself
  • we   → ourselves
  • one  → oneselfs

[ here , absent is not work as transitive verb , it is used as adjective so reflexive pronoun is not used here]

He prostrated himself before his master , who had come from london after a year.

The officer as well as the assistants absented themselves from the office.[ Correct ; himself ]

[ In the sentence there is ' as well as ' used with which verb is changed to 1st noun or pronoun and here officer , so 'themselves' is changed himself.

* Exception

Transitive verb does not use reflexive pronoun.
  • keep
  • stop
  • bathe
  • turn
  • rest
  • qualify
  • hide


# In-transitive Verb

Verb which does not require object.

    aur study too krti nhi ho pr gumti lhti ho apne papa se scooty le lo gumti tum ho ......................krcha kisi aur k hoto h beshram lalki..........................................................

  60. explain ques no 2

  61. it is like,1st take the LCM of ram &shyama and consider it as total work...that is 18..
    ram do work in 1 day =18/18=1
    while shyama do in 1 day 18/9=2
    ram+shyama do in 1 day=1+2=3
    so the in 1 day they complete 3/18=1/6 much of work ;)

  62. Shortcut concept,

    24 men can do the work in 16 days;.........(1)
    32 women can do the same work in 24 days; or
    48 women can do the same work in 16 days............(2)
    therefore, 48 women = 24 men; or
    16 women = 8 man:
    So, 16 men and 16 women(8 men) = 24 man can do the work in 16 days.
    Work already done for 12 days mean 4 days more require to finish it.

  63. Let, x masons can do the work in 27 days.
    then no of masons require to finish it in 30 days is 27x / 30
    According to given problem,
    27x/30 = (x - 15)
    or, 3x = 450
    or x = 150
    So, No of masons require to finished it in 50 days = (150 X 27) / 50 = 81
