The sentences, "Lee gave the ball to Lynne" and "Lynne received the ball from Lee," have the same:
surface structure.
surface and deep structures.
deep structure.
Does this sentence have both surface and deep structure? From reading my text book, I believe it does, but Im a little confused.

    I don't know the technical term, but the first sentence has a verb in the active mode; the second one is passive.

    It is A. Surface strucure.

  • psychology oops! -

    I made a mistake. Both verbs are active.

    Now I am a little confused...was my first option right?

  • English? -

    This sounds more like English than psychology. The first verb is active and the second is passive. However, English is not my area of expertise.

  • psychology -

    agree with Cindy
