1) I found myself [nodding with him], agreeing with things I knew to be true.
Is this a complex sentence with a transitive verb?
In this sentence, ''nodding with him'' seems to modify ''myself'' Because, ''I found myself'' could mean ''*I found my soul, my spirit while I was traveling.'' However, with the modifier, it could also mean, I was surprised to discover that we had so much in common. Furthermore, there is no presence of ''be'' which if am I correct reflects a transitive complex sentence. Furthermore, in the past tense, the sentence would be: I was found nodding with him – with the presence of ''be'' it could now be a transitive complex sentence. Moreover, nodding with him respond to a question in Who not in What - With who did she found herself? - Because I had no difficulty to transform the sentence in the past tense and ask a question in Who, I would go for a transitive complex sentence. What do you think?
