ACTIVE PASSIVE ---CHANGE THE SENTENCES FROM ACTIVE TO PASSIVE VOICE --EXERCISES FOR PRACTICE (with solutions)

EXERCISES FOR PRACTICE

 (Answers of exercises of previous post )  -

ACTIVE & PASSIVE--CHANGE THE VOICE


While writing we use different forms of sentences( i.e active and passive forms). More important words are used as Subject and those of secondary place are used as objective in the sentence. For this we make necessary changes in a sentence. 



These two forms of sentences are called Active and Passive forms of sentences and this process of making a change from active to passive form of a sentence is called 'change of the voice'.


A sentence generally has in it a  Subject , Verb and object. Some sentences do not have an object but for change of voice an object in a sentence is necessary.

In examination there are questions in the form of change of sentences from one form of voice to another i.e. from active to passive form or vice versa  & there are questions to rectify errors due to wrong change of form of sentences.
