Question of The Day14-05-2022

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

The busboy was serving us at the cafe.


Correct Answer : b ) We were being served by the busboy at the cafe.

Explanation :

The given sentence is in the active voice; we need to change it to passive.

Active structure: Subject (the busboy) + verb (was serving) + object (us)

Passive structure: Object (we) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + by + subject (the busboy)

The following rules are used:

●      In the past continuous tense, the verb (was serving) will be changed as helping verb(were) + being + third form of the verb(served)

●      was serving (active)– were being served (passive)

●      'Being' is used to balance the -ing form of the verb.

So, the sentence in passive voice will be, 'The busboy was serving us at the cafe.'

Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
