"The boat is made of paper." Why is the made in the past tense in this sentence? What kind of grammar is this?

  • English -

    passive voice; The paper makes the boat. that is the correct form

  • English -

    This is the Passive Voice. It does not say WHO made it, which would be Active Voice. Instead it says what has been done.
