Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.
Trishika consumed the skimmed milk stored in the refrigerator for 3 days.
Correct Answer : a ) The skimmed milk stored in the refrigerator for 3 days was drunk by Trishika.Explanation :
The given sentence is in active structure; we need to change it to passive.
Active Structure: Subject (Trishika) + verb (drank) + object (the skimmed milk) + complement
Passive Structure: object (the skimmed milk) + complement + helping verb (was) + third form of verb (drunk) + by + subject (Trishika)
The following rules are used:
- In simple past tense, verb (drank) will be changed as helping verb(was) + third form of verb(drunk)
- drank (active) – was drunk (passive)
The complement part in the sentence, i.e., ‘stored in the refrigerator for 3 days’ will take no change because the main verb is ‘drank’ which has to be changed to ‘was drunk’.
So, sentence in passive voice will be, “The skimmed milk stored in the refrigerator for 3 days was drunk by Trishika.”
Hence, option a is the correct answer.
