1. I made the boy carry my bag.
2. The boy is made to carry my bag.

(#2 is the passive voice of #1. By the way why is 'to' added before "carry" in #2?)

  • English -

    One is not exactly the passive of the other. The verb "made" is what you are making passive.

    Take a look at these sentences:

    John ate a hamburger. <~~active
    The hamburger was eaten by John. <~~passive

    Try again.

  • English -

    Active:

    The boy carried my bag.



    Passive:

    My bag was carried by the boy.
