Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Make a sentence in Active Voice 

  • 2. 

    Write a sentence in Passive Voice 

  • 3. 

    We use passive voice to emphasize the object instead of the subject in the sentence. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Passive voice is used to shift the focus from the subject to the object in a sentence. By using the passive voice, the object becomes the main focus and is emphasized. This is done by placing the object at the beginning of the sentence and using the appropriate form of the verb "to be" followed by the past participle of the main verb. This allows for a more effective and impactful communication of the message.

    Correct Answer
    B. Piano is played by Sherly every Sunday. 
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Piano is played by Sherly every Sunday." This is the correct passive voice form of the given sentence "Sherly plays the piano every Sunday." In the passive voice, the subject of the active sentence (Sherly) becomes the object, and the object of the active sentence (the piano) becomes the subject. The verb "plays" is changed to "is played" to indicate the passive voice.

    Explanation
    The passive voice is used in the sentences "Mac book Pro is brought by my dad every Monday," "The mouse is trapped by Nando," "The deer was eaten by the alligator," and "The text is sent to Ms. Laura." In these sentences, the subject is receiving the action rather than performing the action.

  • 7. 

    Active Voice: My mom washes a pair of shoes every day. Passive Voice: A pair of shoes .........

    Correct Answer(s)
    are washed by my mom every day.
    Explanation
    The given correct answer correctly transforms the active voice sentence "My mom washes a pair of shoes every day" into passive voice. In the passive voice, the subject of the sentence (a pair of shoes) becomes the object, and the object (my mom) becomes the subject. The verb "are washed" is used to indicate the action being done to the shoes. The phrase "by my mom" indicates who is performing the action. The addition of "every day" indicates that this action happens on a daily basis.
