  • Grammar -

    Check out the Passive Voice section of this site... There is where you are having a problem.

    The child was treated with erythromycin. was=verb treated = subject.

    was treated = verb
    Then ask yourself WHAT was treated.


    Cultures were taken of the throat. were = verb cultures = subject

    Cultures IS the subject.
    "were" is part of the verb. Ask yourself.. what was the action involving the cultures.

    The patient was returned to the recovery room in good condition. was = verb,recovery room = subject

    Nope... What is the total action? Then who or what.

    Physical examination showed marked irritability. physical examination = verb, irritability = subject

    Nope... after you read the site, please repost with your corrected sentences.

  • Grammar -

    Oh, my. You're somewhat confused.

    The verb shows action or state of being. The subject tells who or what is doing the action.

    1. The child was treated with erythromycin.

    The verb is was treated.
    Who was treated?
    The child was treated. Child is the subject.


    2. Cultures were taken of the throat.

    Verb = were taken.
    What were taken?
    Cultures is the subject.

    For the rest of the sentences, study the above examples and this site, then repost your answers to the last three sentences.
