Phrasal Verbs II

A phrasal verb is a verb and a particle like: out, on, over, etc. which has a different meaning from the verb on its own.
There are 5 kinds of Phrasal Verbs:
1.1. Intransitive Verbs (No object needed)
My father passed away in 1999.
1.2. Transitive Verbs (They need an object)
He can't get over bad marks in his exams.
1.3. Separable Transitive Verbs (Some transitive verbs are separable)
Turn off the radio, please. Turn the radio off, please.
But, if we use the pronoun it instead of the noun "radio", we must always separate the particle from its verb;
Turn it on, please.
1.4. Nonseparable Transitive Verbs (Some transitive verbs are not separable)
Look after the boy, please. 
Look after him, please.
1.5. Some transitive verbs have got two particles which are not separable
