Change the following sentence from Active voice to Passive voice:

1. The teacher shouted at the learners when thy did not do their homework.
2. The thief stole a watch from the shop.
3. The soccer player dribbled the ball.

  • grammar -

    All these sentences are in active voice because the subject is DOING the action:
    teacher shouted
    thief stole
    player dribbled

    To make them passive, you have to turn the sentence around, in a way. Here are a couple of pairs of active/passive sentences so you can see the difference:

    John ate the hamburger. (active)
    The hamburger was eaten by John. (passive)

    Lily hit the softball. (active)
    The softball was hit by Lily. (passive)
