Active Voiceను PASSIVE Voiceలోకి ఎలా మార్చాలి?

Passive voice is used when the focus is on the action (things done). (అంటే చేసే వ్యక్తి కంటే చేసిన పని ముఖ్యం అరుునప్పుడు ఉపయోగిస్తాం. Many times it is not important or not known, who is performing the action. అవసరం కూడా లేదు.
Eg: » My car was stolen. /Milk is sold here
       » Computer courses are taught in this institute.
       » Hyderabad was named after its founder in 1816.
In the examples above, the focus is on the facts. Sometimes a statement in Passive is more polite than Active Voice, as the following example shows:
Eg:   » A mistake was made.
[ఫలానా వాళ్లు చేసారు అనే దాని కంటే]

Form of Passive
A letter was written.
When rewriting Active sentences in Passive Voice, Follow the following steps:
  • The object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence.

  • మారిన కొత్త object ముందర by పెట్టాలి .
Eg: My grandmother planted this tree.
          sub                      verb    obj
This tree was planted by my grandmother.
