In their kitchens bread was baked.  Along their corridors echoed family conversations. They were built and handsomely decorated. The first villa was built around A.D. 80-90. It was a small farm. Later on the house was extended, kitchens and baths were added.It is known that many villas were destroyed by fire. Their ruins remain hidden for years and it is often by accident that the site is discovered.So in Hampshire a number of oyster-shells were found by a farmer, and the shells, remnants of a long-ago feast, led to the discovery of the villa at Rockbourne.

    • D.

      My car is washed.

    Correct Answer
    D. My car is washed.
    Explanation
    The sentence "My car is washed" is in the passive voice in the present tense. In the passive voice, the subject receives the action of the verb. In this case, "My car" is the subject and "is washed" is the verb phrase. The verb "is washed" is in the present tense, indicating that the action of washing is currently taking place.

    Correct Answer
    robbed, ROBBED, Robbed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "robbed". In this sentence, the verb "rob" is in the past tense and is used in the passive voice. The subject "my best friend" is the one receiving the action of being robbed, rather than performing the action. Therefore, the correct form of the verb is "robbed".

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Passive voice is referred to as the weak voice because it does not assign responsibilities to the subject of the sentence. In passive voice, the subject is acted upon rather than performing the action. This often results in a lack of clarity and accountability. Therefore, the statement that passive voice is called the weak voice because it does not place responsibilities is true.

In these sentences, the actions of cleaning the clinic and delivering the letters have been completed in the past, and the focus is on the result or the current state of the actions. The use of "has been" indicates the passive voice, and "cleaned" and "delivered" are the past participles of the verbs.

    The sentences "This man is being kept in prison because he did something very bad," "Pancakes are being made in the kitchen," "She's being hugged by her brother," and "Penguins living in the Antarctic are being threatened by global climate change" are in Passive Present Continuous Tense. In this tense, the subject is receiving the action being performed by someone or something else, and the verb is formed using a form of "be" (is, are, am) + present participle (-ing form of the verb). These sentences all follow this structure and indicate ongoing actions happening to the subject.
