Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active/passive) form of the given sentence.
By this time, you will have resumed your studies.
Correct Answer : a ) By this time, your studies will have been resumed by you.Explanation :
The given sentence is in the future perfect tense and is given in active voice.
Active structure: Subject (you) + verb (will have resumed) + object (your studies)
Passive structure: Object (your studies) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + by + subject (you)
The following rules are used:
- In future perfect tense, verb (will have resumed) will be changed as helping verb(will) + have been + third form of verb (resumed)
- will have resumed – will have been resumed
There is no change made in adverbials of time i.e. ‘by the time’.
So, the sentence in passive voice will be, “By this time, your studies will have been resumed by you.”
Hence, (a) is the correct answer.
