Question of The Day05-12-2020

Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.

Tarini puts lots of spices in whatever she cooks.


Correct Answer : b ) Lots of spices are put by Tarini in whatever she cooks.

Explanation :

The sentence is in active structure; we need to change it to passive.

Active structure: Subject (Tarini) + verb (puts) + object (lots of spices) + complement (in whatever she cooks)

Passive structure: Object (lots of spices) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + by + subject (Tarini) + complement

The following rules are used:

  • In simple present tense, verb (puts) will be changed as helping verb(is/are) + third form of verb(put)
  • puts (active)– are put (passive)
  • Complement part (in whatever she cooks) takes no change.

So, sentence in passive voice will be, “Lots of spices are put by Tarini in whatever she cooks.”

Hence, (B) is the correct answer.
