Intransitive verbs have the pattern N + V (noun + verb). The clause is complete without anything else:

 

Noun Phrase (Subject) Verb Phrase
John
Nothing
The baby
smiled
happened
was sleeping

(John) (smiled).
(Nothing) (has happened).
(The baby) (was sleeping).

amazing, my score  was 100% , i  am  so  happy

 The second sentence meaning is not clear

 Hi mohamed,
I assume you are referring to 'They disappeared.' (?)
This sentence means 'They are (or were) not there.'

Seem is transitive? I think after seem we can use adjs not nouns, right? She seems nice, he seems happy, etc. I need to be clarified.

Same for  "The soup tastes (bad/sour/awful)". Requesting clarity for these two questions.

I didn't understand that last lesson.

It helped me to improve my grammar skill.

Hmmm... so far so good. I can understand now what 'clause, intransitive and transitive' is. thank you very much, you really helped me.
