PRESENT CONTINUOUS PASSIVE VOICE TENSE

Main Points Of Passive Voice

There are some main points, we need to understand this before making the passive voice sentences.

1)  Object of the active voice becomes subject while subject of the active voice becomes object.

2)  In passive voice, subject doesn't work

3)  There is no need to use object in passive voice. Because we needn't tell that by whom the action was taken.

4)  Use by before the object of the passive voice, if you use the object.

5)  Always use the 3rd form of the verb in each passive voice.

6)  Some of the verbs carry to instead of by, as. e.g He knows me. > I am known to him.

7)  We can also make Passive Voice sentences without using the Object which we use in the end.

Formula: Object + Helping Verb(is / am / are) + (being) + Verb-ing(form) + by + Object(subject of Active Voice)
