The correct answer is option -C

The given sentence is the active voice

We have to changed it into passive voice.

Active voice- Subject +verb+object +complement.

Passive voice- object + auxiliary verb+V3+by+Subject+complement.

The given sentence is in the past perfect tense.

Only option C is grammatically correct.

Option A-it is in simple past form.But given sentence is in past perfect tense.

Option -B – it is in the present perfect tense.But usage of been’ is on wrong place.it should be after helping verb Had’.

Option D- It is in the simple past form.

So except option C all are grammatically incorrect.

The correct answer is option number -B

The given construction is in passive form

We need to changed it in the a active voice.

The given sentence is in present perfect tense.

So option B is the correct answer.

Rest options are grammatically incorrect.

The correct answer is option number -C

The given sentence is in active voice.

The correct answer is option number -D

If the sentence starts with verb’ then we use let’ while changing it into passive voice.

Given construction – verb +object.

Passive voice – Let + object + be+ V3.

Remaining options are incorrect.

The correct answer is option number -C

The given sentence is in the active voice.

We need to change it into passive voice.

It is in

S +H.V+(V2)+ O. (Active Voice)

In passive voice it will be,

O+H.V+been+V2+by+Subject

Active Voice-They have made a film based on this novel.

Passive Voice- A film, based on this novel, has been made.

The given sentence is in the present perfect form.

While changing it into passive voice,we need to use `been’ after helping verb.

The correct choice is C.

Option A -is in past form.(was is used)

Option B & D are grammatically incorrect.

Given sentence is in active voice(compounded using ‘and ‘) and change it into passive voice.

Since there are two simple sentence and we should change the voices of both the sentences

It is in the form of ‘ sub1 + modal auxiliary +not+ V1+ obj’ and ‘ sub2 + V2 + obj’

It is to be converted into the from of ‘ obj+ modal auxiliary +not+be+ V3+ sub1 and obj + was/were+ v3 + by+ sub2’.

In this case we can eliminate the group of people. Simply I couldn’t be moved conveys the actual meaning. Then the word ‘ I ‘ don’t need to place again. since it’s connected using ‘and’.

So the correct answer is A.

Given sentence is active voice and change it into passive voice.

It’s in the form of ‘Wh question + auxiliary verb + subject +V1+obj’

So we need to convert in the form of ”Wh question + auxiliary verb + obj + V2 + by + subject’

By considering option B & D, since the subject is you  it should be our membership, the correct Answer is D.

Given sentence is in passive voice. According to the given instruction change it into active voice.

It’s given in the form of ‘Obj+have/has been+V3+ by+ subject’.

The active form of  the above sentence is ‘subject +have /has +V3 + object ‘.

So the option B is correct answer

Given sentence is passive voice. According to the given instruction change it into active voice .

The given sentence is in past tense in the form of ‘was not + V3 + by’.

To convert it into active voice Change it in the form of  ‘did not + V1’.

So option C suits the best of all other options.

It was known to Abhishek that his own life had been unjust.

The answer has been learnt by heart by her.

The cow was patted and touched by the old man.
