Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.
It is known by everyone that the final decision will be made by them.
Correct Answer : c ) Everyone knows that they will make the final decision.Explanation :
The sentence is in passive structure; we need to change it to active.
Passive structure: It + is + third form (known) + by + subject (everyone) +that + object (the final decision) + helping verb (will) + be + main verb (made) + by + them
Active structure: Subject (Everyone) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + that + they + change of verb accordingly (given below)
The following rules are used:
- In present simple tense, verb (it is known) will be changed as first form of verb (knows).
- it is known (passive) – knows (active)
- will be made (passive) – will make (active)
- ‘them’ (objective case) changes to ‘they’ in subjective case.
So, sentence in active voice will be, “Everyone knows that they will make the final decision.”
Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
