English Grammar Active Passive Voice Introduction


An action of a subject in relation to an object is expressed in two ways called voices.

Voice can be categorized into two broad categories:

  • Active Voice
  • Passive Voice

The structure of a sentence and its sequence of subject and object is reversed when converted from Active voice to Passive voice or vice versa, but its meaning remains the same.

The form of the verb also changes when a sentence I converted from active to Passiv Voice or vice versa.

For example,

Active Voice: Subhendu ate an apple.

Passive Voice: An apple was eaten by Subhendu.
