    Correct Answer
    B. Passive
    Explanation
    The given sentence "After two years of waiting, the latest LCD TV was finally released" is in the passive voice. In a passive sentence, the subject receives the action rather than performing it. In this case, the subject "the latest LCD TV" is receiving the action of being released. The sentence emphasizes the action of releasing the TV rather than who performed the action.

      Active

    • B.

      Passive

    Correct Answer
    A. Active
    Explanation
    The given sentence is in the active voice because the subject "she" is performing the action "is not wearing" on the object "her favorite shirt." In the passive voice, the object would become the subject and the sentence would be structured differently, such as "Her favorite shirt is not being worn by her today." However, as the given sentence is already in the active voice, the correct answer is active.

    Most of the students were not in the class today.

    • A.

      Active

    • B.

      Passive

    Correct Answer
    A. Active
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Active" because the sentence is in active voice, indicating that the subject (students) is performing the action (not being in the class). In passive voice, the sentence would be structured differently, with the subject being acted upon. However, since the sentence is already in active voice, there is no need to change it to passive voice.
