    Turn the sentence into the passive form. (Ommit "by") She feeds the animal twice a day.

    Explanation
    The sentence is transformed into the passive form by changing the subject "She" to "The animal" and adding the auxiliary verb "is" before the past participle "fed." The sentence retains the same meaning, indicating that the animal is the recipient of the action of being fed twice a day.

    Turn the sentence into the passive form. (Ommit "by") My friends deliver the newspaper in the morning.

    Explanation
    The given sentence is in active voice, where the subject "My friends" are performing the action of delivering the newspaper. To turn it into passive voice, we need to make the object "the newspaper" the subject of the sentence and use the correct form of the verb "deliver" in the passive voice. Therefore, the correct passive form of the sentence is "The newspaper is delivered in the morning."

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Turn the sentence into the passive form. (Ommit "by") John made the dress

    Explanation
    The given sentence "John made the dress" is in active voice. To convert it into passive voice, we need to remove the word "by" and change the verb form to its past participle form. Therefore, the correct passive form of the sentence is "The dress was made."

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Turn the sentence into the passive form. (Ommit "by") Charlie broke the glasses with a stone.

    Explanation
    The original sentence states that Charlie broke the glasses with a stone. To turn this sentence into the passive form, we need to make the glasses the subject of the sentence. Therefore, we say "The glasses were broken" to indicate that the glasses were the ones that were broken. We also include the phrase "with a stone" to indicate the instrument used to break the glasses.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Turn the sentence into the passive form. (Use "by") England makes the best computers.

    Explanation
    The sentence is transformed into the passive form by using the word "by" to indicate the doer of the action. In this case, the original sentence "England makes the best computers" is changed to "The best computers are made by England." This construction emphasizes that England is the entity responsible for producing the best computers.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Turn the sentence into the passive form. (Use "by") Bella saw the mouse in the kitchen.

    Explanation
    The sentence has been transformed into the passive form by using the word "by" to indicate the doer of the action. The subject "Bella" has become the object of the sentence, while the object "the mouse" has become the subject. The verb "saw" has been changed to "was seen" to reflect the passive voice. The location "in the kitchen" remains the same.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Choose the best option. We use the passives when we do not care or know about the subject.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Passives are used when the subject of the sentence is not important or unknown. In passive voice, the focus is on the action being done rather than the doer of the action. This allows the speaker to emphasize the action itself rather than who is performing it. Therefore, the statement that "we use the passives when we do not care or know about the subject" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Choose the best option. To form the Passive we use "the verb to be + Verb -ing form"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer is that to form the passive voice, we use "the verb to be + past participle form of the verb," not "the verb to be + verb -ing form." Therefore, the statement "To form the Passive we use 'the verb to be + Verb -ing form'" is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Choose the best option. The object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a passive sentence, the subject of the active sentence is no longer performing the action but is instead receiving the action. The object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Choose the best option. With the modal verbs we don't use the verb to be in passive.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "With the modal verbs we don't use the verb to be in passive" is incorrect. In passive voice constructions, modal verbs can be used along with the verb to be. For example, "The car can be driven" or "The book should be read." Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Choose the best option. We use "Have / Get + somethoing + done" when someone does something for you

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because when we use "Have/Get + something + done," it implies that someone else is performing an action on our behalf. This construction is commonly used when we want someone to do something for us or complete a task on our behalf. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Choose the best option. In the sentence "Mary had  her hair dyed."  We refer that "She didn’t dyed it herself".

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The correct answer is True. In the sentence, "Mary had her hair dyed," it implies that someone else dyed Mary's hair for her. If Mary had dyed her own hair, the sentence would be "Mary dyed her hair." Therefore, we can infer that she didn't dye it herself.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is False. The sentence states that the radiators need replacing, but based on the information provided, we cannot determine if this statement is true or false. The conversation between the two neighbors does not provide any context or discussion about the condition of the radiators. Therefore, we cannot confirm if the radiators actually need replacing or not.

    • A.

      Active Voice

    • B.

      Passive Voice

    A. Active Voice
    Explanation
    This sentence is in the active voice because the subject (Vivaldi) is the one performing the action (composing) on the object (operas). In the passive voice, the object would become the subject and the sentence would be structured differently, such as "More than 40 operas were composed by Vivaldi."

    B. Passive voice
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Passive voice" because the sentence "Letters are delivered everyday" is in the passive voice.
