How to Use of (Person) Pronoun In Active To Passive
(a) Inactive voice, a sentence begins with a subject (They, The teacher) sentence
(b) In a passive voice, a sentence begins with an object (The work, The boy) sentences
However, sentences only with transitive verbs admit of Passive Expressions. Now study the following sentences (v) Ilya came here. (vi) Father is going out.
The verbs ‘come, go’ are intransitive because these verbs do not have objects. The effect of the action does not pass over to any object. Therefore, these verbs are called intransitive. Since they are not used with object, they do not admit of Passive
Therefore, before making a sentence, a student must note carefully whether the sentence is beginning with subject or object.
