a verb is a word that describes an action or state of being. In this case, 'create' is an action verb that refers to an act of making or producing something. It can be either transitive or intransitive.

when used transitively, 'create' is followed by an object that denotes a thing or outcome being produced as a result of the action. Example 'She created an incredible painting.'

2. He created a mess when he knocked over the vase.
