ILL T1W7

22th February 2014
1:30PM - 2:00PM


What i did:

I researched on passive and active voice

What i learned: 


Active Voice:

When the subject does or "acts upon" the verb in sentences, it is called active voice.

Example :

Bobby threw the orange out of the window.

In this sentence Bobby is doing the throwing. 



Passive Voice:

The normal word order of an active sentence can be changed till it's no longer active, and is instead acted upon by the verb which is also called passive voice.


When the subject is being "acted upon" (or is passive), it is called passive voice.


Example :
The orange was thrown out of the window by Bobby.


In this sentence the orange was being thrown.
