      The mice were eaten by the cat.

    Correct Answer
    B. The mice are eaten by the cat.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The mice are eaten by the cat." In the passive voice, the subject of the active sentence (the cat) becomes the object, and the object of the active sentence (the mice) becomes the subject. Since "mice" is a plural noun, the correct form of the verb "to be" is "are." Therefore, the correct passive sentence is "The mice are eaten by the cat."

      The hunter had shot the deer.

    Correct Answer
    C. The hunter has shot the deer.
    Explanation
    The given correct answer "The hunter has shot the deer" is the passive form of the sentence "The deer have been shot by the hunter." In the active form, the subject (hunter) performs the action (shoots) on the object (deer). The use of "has" indicates that the action has been completed in the present perfect tense.
