Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.
Shazam decoded the challenge passcode of the software at the eleventh hour.”
Correct Answer : a ) The challenge passcode of the software was decoded by Shazam at the eleventh hour.Explanation :
Active structure: Subject (Shazam) + verb (decoded) + object (challenge passcode of the software)
Passive structure: Object (challenge passcode of the software) + helping verb (was) + third form of verb (decoded) + by + subject (Shazam)
The following rules are used:
• In simple past tense, verb (decoded) will be changed as helping verb (was) + third form of verb (decoded)
The complement part ‘at the eleventh hour’ will take no change as it is an idiom.
“At the eleventh hour” means at the last moment.
So, sentence in passive voice will be, “The challenge passcode of the software was decoded by Shazam at the eleventh hour”.
Hence, option A is the correct answer.
