Choose the most appropriate option to change the voice (active / passive) form of the given sentence.
They might mention fake names to save themselves.
Correct Answer : d ) Fake names might be mentioned by them to save themselves.Explanation :
The given sentence is in active structure; we need to change it to passive.
Active structure: Subject (they) + helping verb (might) + main verb (mention)+ object (fake names) + complement
Passive structure: Object (fake names) + change of verb accordingly (given below) + by + subject (them) + complement
The following rules are used:
● In case of modals, verb (might mention) will be changed as helping verb(might) + be + third form of verb(mentioned)
● might mention (active) – might be mentioned (passive)
Complement part (to save themselves) takes no change.
So, sentence in passive voice will be, ‘Fake names might be mentioned by them to save themselves’.
Hence, (d) is the correct answer.
