Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.
The details of the drug traffickers might be mentioned in the upcoming list by them.
Correct Answer : d ) They might mention the details of the drug traffickers in the upcoming list.Explanation :
The given sentence is in passive structure; we need to change it to active.
Passive structure: Object (the details of the drug traffickers) + helping verb (might) + be + third form for main verb (mentioned) + by + subject (them)
Active structure: Subject (they) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + object (details of the drug traffickers)
The following rules are used:
- In case of modals, verb (might mention) replaces helping verb (might) + be + third form of verb (mentioned)
- might be mentioned (passive) - might mention (active)
- Complement part (of the drug traffickers in the upcoming list) does take any change.
So, sentence in active voice will be, ‘They might mention the details of the drug traffickers in the upcoming list.’
Hence, (d) is the correct answer.
