Proliferate (vi/vt)

Since it’s Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day today, and I am on a two-hour delay for the start of the school day, circumstances both permit and require me to off this context clues worksheet on the verb proliferate. Merriam-Webster says it is used both intransitively and transitively, although I don’t know that I have ever used it transitively.

Would it look and sound like this? “The lobbyist from Big Bummer proliferated legislation promoting bad vibes wherever he went.”

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
