Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active/passive) form of the given sentence.
An instrument needed by the lead guitarist has been created by them.
Correct Answer : b ) They have created an instrument needed by the lead guitarist.Explanation :
The given sentence is in passive structure, and we need to change it to active.
Passive structure: Object (an instrument) + helping verb (has) + been + third form (created) + by + subject (them)
Active structure: Subject (they) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + object (an instrument)
The following rules are used:
- In present perfect tense, passive verb (has been created) will be changed to helping verb(have) + third form of verb(created)
- ‘Has’ is used because ‘instrument’ is singular in form. Therefore, has been created – have created
So, the sentence in active voice will be, “They have created an instrument needed by the lead guitarist”.
Hence, option B is the correct answer.
