Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.
Sneha observes her patients closely while examining them.
Correct Answer : b ) Her patients are observed closely by Sneha while examining them.Explanation :
The given sentence is in active structure, we need to change it to passive.
Active structure: Subject (Sneha) + verb (observes) + object (her patients) + Complement
Passive structure: Object (Her patients) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + by + subject (Sneha) + Complement
The following rules are used:
- In simple present tense, verb (observes) will be changed as helping verb(are) + third form of verb (observed)
- observes (active) – are observed (passive)
- Complement part (while examining them) takes no change.
So, sentence in passive voice will be, “Her patients are observed closely by Sneha while examining them.”
Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
