Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.
Anshula keeps the team intact. Her team plays basketball.
Correct Answer : c ) The team is kept intact by Anshula. Basketball is played by her team.Explanation :
The given sentence is in the active voice; we need to change it to passive.
Active structure: Subject (Anshula) + verb (keeps) + object (the team)
Passive structure: Object (The team) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + by + subject (Anshula)
Active structure: Subject (Her team) + verb (plays) + object (basketball)
Passive structure: Object (Basketball) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + by + subject (her team)
The following rules are used:
● In the simple present tense, the verb (keeps; plays) will be changed as helping verb(is) + third form of the verb(kept)
● keeps (active)– is kept (passive)
● plays (active) – is played (passive)
So, the sentence in passive voice will be, 'The team is kept intact by Anshula. Basketball is played by her team'.
Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
