    Explanation
    The correct answer is "should be opened". This is because the sentence is in the future tense and the verb "should" is followed by the base form of the verb "be" and the adjective "open".

    • D.

      Are not cleaned

    Correct Answer
    D. Are not cleaned
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are not cleaned". This is because the sentence is in the passive voice, indicating that the rooms are the subject of the action (cleaning) rather than the maid. The phrase "are not cleaned" suggests that the rooms are not being cleaned by the maid.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Change the following sentences into passive voice (Include the doer):       He can cut out the picture.

    Correct Answer
    The picture can be cut out by him.
    Explanation
    The given answer correctly transforms the active sentence "He can cut out the picture" into the passive voice. In the passive voice, the subject of the active sentence ("He") becomes the doer, and the object of the active sentence ("the picture") becomes the subject. The verb "can cut out" is changed to "can be cut out" to maintain the same tense. The phrase "by him" is added to indicate the doer of the action. Therefore, the passive sentence "The picture can be cut out by him" accurately reflects the original sentence in the passive voice.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Change the following sentences into passive voice (Include the doer):          She told me a lie

    Correct Answer
    I was told a lie by her.
    Explanation
    The original sentence "She told me a lie" is in the active voice. In order to change it to the passive voice, the object "me" becomes the subject, the verb "told" is changed to its passive form "was told", and the subject "She" becomes the doer of the action, indicated by the preposition "by". Therefore, the correct passive voice sentence with the doer included is "I was told a lie by her."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Change the following sentences into passive voice (Include the doer):      We have done our homework.

    Correct Answer
    Our homework has been done by us.
    Explanation
    The sentence "Our homework has been done by us" is the correct passive voice transformation of the given sentence "We have done our homework." In the passive voice, the subject of the active sentence (we) becomes the object of the passive sentence (our homework), and the object of the active sentence (our homework) becomes the subject of the passive sentence. The phrase "by us" indicates that we are the doers of the action.

    Complete the sentences to report what these people said.             "Our bag has been checked"       My brother told me that our bag____________________. 

    Correct Answer
    had been checked
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had been checked". This is because the sentence is in reported speech, indicating that the brother told the speaker that their bag had already been checked. The past perfect tense "had been checked" is used to show that the action of checking the bag occurred before the time of reporting.

The phrase "must take off" implies a strong obligation or requirement, emphasizing the importance of following the instruction. Similarly, the phrase "had to take off" suggests that there was no alternative and the action of removing the shoes was mandatory.
