reword sentence using the appropriate voice active or passive
A new office recycling program was set up by my supervisor.

  • Business communications -

    Active voice is when the subject is doing the action of the verb.

    * Jack threw the baseball.
    * I made myself a sandwich.

    Passive voice is when something/someone else is doing the action, usually preceded by the word "by."

    * The baseball was thrown by Jack.
    * The sandwich was made by me.

    In the sentence you were given, the main verb is "was set up" -- it's in passive form because it was the supervisor that did the setting up. How can you reword that so that "supervisor" is the subject of the sentence and the verb is active?

  • Business communications -

    The supervisor set up the new recycling program in our office.

    reword for active/passive
    The shipping company advertises, "The tightest ship in the shipping business is run by us."

  • Business communications -

    You're right about the recycling program.

    How can you change this sentence to include an active verb? "The tightest ship in the business is run by us."

  • Business communications -

    We run the tightest ship in the business.

    Great! :-)
