1.Looked(intransitive verb)
2.Bought(transitive verb)
3.Spoke(intransitive)
4.Yawning(intransitive)
5.Scolded(intransitive)

transitive verbs are related with objects while intransitive word are not related with objects.
When we use a word like "bought",we are talking about buying something or some object.So,it is an intransitive word.But when we used words like spoke,yawn,scolded,these words are not related with objects but only people ,so these are intransitive.
