According to Whitaker, Ramsey & Smith (2012, p. 91) states that active voice is when the subject is doing the actions ‘Abdul read the book’ and passive is when the action is being done to the subject ‘the book was read by Abdul’.
I really did very badly at this, my years of turning active to passive make it so much harder for me to turn it the other way round. Logically it should make turning passive into active easy but I found this very difficult.
As far as I can tell I had issues in all of the questions. so I suppose the good news is there is no lower than my current level only higher which means that I cannot fail to improve.
I really need to work on this. I am sure this would really improve upon both my ability to write in journalism and even possibly my grades.
