  1. Yes, the first one, because the subject DOING the action of the verb?

    To make the second one active, you'll need to say who is doing the serving. Who will you say?

  2. Thank you. My school gave me these sentences and asked me to say which one is in the active voice. I was just curious to know how the second sentence could be written in the active voice.

  3. You're welcome.

    Just remember that to be ACTIVE, the subject has to be DOING the action of the verb!
