Hi everyone,
I am very pleased and honored to have a such reaction from all of you, so thank you very much.
Now other sentences:
1- Bill breaks the door.
2- He beats me.
3- Sam lived with Ann.
4- You could play with these cups carefully.
again I keep putting these sentences in order to learn from each other.
With my best wishes for you all.

Hi pals, i a bit confuse about this passive and active word. But i'had tried my best to answer all the phrases given. Correct me if i'm wrong ok :)


Hi Nuriz,

You meed full stops at the end of all your sentences. Your understanding of changes to the passive tense seems to be pretty good on the whole. The mistakes you tend to make are with plurals, etc.
My corrections take account of the structure of the original questions.

1. The apples is eaten by them <--- Apples are eaten by them.
2. An apples was eaten by Sam <-- An apple was eaten by Sam.
3. An apples have been eaten by us <--An apple has been eaten by us.
4. An apples has been eaten by her <-- Apples have been eaten by her.
5. The news is being read by him <-- News is read by him.
6. A book was being read by her <-- Books are read by her.
7. London is a place that i had been visited <-- London had been visited by me.
8. The book will be kept here by us <-- The books will be kept here by us.
9. The book will have been kept here by us <-- The books will have been kept here by us.
10. The door is been shutted <-- 'Shut the door' is tricky because it is a command. 'Door be shut!' is the passive response, even though that would not generally be used.

Excuse me Beeesneees can we say:
active: shut the door.
passive: The door must be shut.
Because I learned that " must be " is the auxiliary verb to be in the command passive sentences.
with my regards.

difference between simple present tense with present perfect tense #81 (permalink) Mon May 02, 2011 7:09 am   difference between simple present tense with present perfect tense

The difference between them as follows:
= Use present tense: to show that something is done habitually e.g every day ...etc
for example: Somebody cleans this room every day. (active)
This room is cleaned every day. (passive)

= Use present perfect: to show that something has been done before this moment.
for example: The room looks nice. Somebody has cleaned it. (active)
The room looks nice. It has been cleaned.

follow these rules to form :

( present tense) : Object + is/ are / am + verb (p.p)
( present perfect tense): Object + has / have + v (p.p)

With my best wishes.

My friend Rifat...,
Your sentence must be written like this:
= Ali closes the window. as a " Present active" sentence and to change it to "passive" it must be changed like this
= The window is closed( by Ali ).

The subject ( by Ali ) in passive sentences is not necessary to be mentioned , because this target structure is based upon not knowing
the subject, unless if we want to show " who has done the verb." Or in other words the importance of the subject.

Hi !
I want to ask you what is the difference between meanings of these two sentences:
A pizza is eaten by me. (It was taken from Beeesneees
answer above on page 5)
And
A pizza has been eaten by me.

And one more question. What distinguishes this two sentences :
I was being treated as ...
And
I was treated as...
May I ask you to clarify for me using word "being" ?

'Being' here is the participle of the verb 'be'. To me, it emphasises the continuous nature of the act.

Without additional context, the difference is small, though. The majority of native English speakers use them as interchangeable options unless the greater context means that one would be more appropriate than the other.

Hi Yankee

Thanks for your contribution. Just a word of warning: you won't find that the Present Perfect,the Past perfect and the Future Perfect continuous passive forms are really used in practice. The future perfect would be: will have been written and of course don't forget the present perfect: has been written.
