THE PASSIVE, Dec. 1st

Change an active voice sentence to the passive voice, or change a passive voice sentence to the active voice.

The exercise was completed online by the technologically aware students.

Last week's question proved to be very difficult; you needed to add a subject to the sentence.
No one was discovered in the burned out building.
For example: (Someone/Firemen/Police) didn't discover anyone in the burned out building. This sentence is an example of why the passive is sometimes useful.

Postings will be saved in the archives (see sidebar).
