By this sentence, Mr. Hales takes the class.
The word Mr. Hales is the noun.
The word the class is the object.
The word takes is the verb.
Only when all the three words are there, the whole sentence becomes complete and meaningful.
In case the object word is not there, the sentence Mr. Hales takes conveys no meaning and
the sentence does not become complete. In that case what does Mr. Hales take? is not clear.
So only when the verb takes gets an object, the meaning behind the verb takes becomes complete.
That means the verb takes needs an object to make itself complete.
Such a verb which needs an object is called transitive verb.
That means the action of the verb is transmitted to another noun or another thing.

Here the verb brought (bring) needs an object to become meaningful.

So the verb bring (brought) is a transitive verb.
