transitive and intransitive verbs

  1. Is it plausible to mainly take account of the image of action that a certain verb gives rather than the usage (transitive or intransitive) of verb when I construct a sentence?
    Of Course,I’m asking that except for the verbs like be, become and etc.

.

  1. In a similar vein, now I ask a detail question. the phrase “lead to” is used like this.

the situation A leads to a dangerous situation.

but can I use “lead” and “to” like this?

the president leads the situation A to a dangerous situation.

is it wrong?? answer me please.

Answer

Your sentence is close to idiomatic. You simply need the progressive/continuous rather than the simple present.

Failing to clean a cut can lead to infection.

You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink.

The mayor is leading the city to apocalypse and ruin with this new tax on soda pop.
