Active and Passive Voice Exercise
Active and Passive Voice Exercise

We use passive voice when we do not know who the subject is, or it is not important who the subject is or when it is obvious to the listener or reader who the subject is because it is the person who usually does it.  When we give more importance to the object of the sentences rather than the subject, we use passive voice. Below we have prepared active and passive voice exercise for ESL students. Attempt the following exercise, then compare your answers with the correct answers given below.
