Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    I washed my car. (have) . Rewrite the sentence with correct usage of verb.

    Explanation
    The original sentence "I washed my car" is written in the active voice, where the subject performs the action. However, the given answer "I had my car washed" is written in the passive voice, where the subject receives the action. In this case, the subject "I" arranged or instructed someone to wash the car, and the car is the object that received the action. Therefore, the correct usage of the verb "had" in the sentence indicates that the subject caused someone else to wash their car.
