Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.
The active participants have protested against the latest announcement.
Correct Answer : b ) The latest announcement has been protested against by the active participants.Explanation :
The given sentence is in active structure, we need to change it to passive.
Active structure: Subject (The active participants) + verb (have protested against) + object (the latest announcement)
Passive structure: Object (The latest announcement) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + by + subject (the active participants)
The following rules are used:
- In present perfect tense, verb (have protested against) will be changed as helping verb (has) + been + third form of verb (protested)
- ‘Has’ is used because ‘the latest announcement’ is singular in form.
- have protested (active) – has been protested (passive)
So, sentence in passive voice will be, “The latest announcement has been protested against by the active participants.”
Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
