Passive Voice of Miscellaneous

We have covered almost all types of Passive Voice sentences. It is observed that Passive Voice sentence emphasize more on action and subject is normally not there. Where subject comes, it is written that the action is done by the subject. e.g. Room has been cleaned. When subject is added then it becomes - Room has been cleaned by her. Importance is on action.

Sometimes at the time of making passive voice of sentences which contains words -someone / somebody / one's etc, these words are removed e.g. Active voice : Someone has stolen our cycle. Passive voice : Our cycle has been stolen. When such Passive voice sentence is to be converted in Active voice sentence, such words are added again with the Active voice sentence.

Hamane lagbhag sabhee prakaar ke Passive voice vaakyo ko cover kar liyaa ha. Yah note kiyaa kee passive voice vaakyo meiN Action par jyaadaa mahatva diyaa jaataa hai aur aamtaur par subject nahee hotaa. JahaaN subject aataa hai, vahaaN likhaa jaataa hai kee Action subject dwaaraa kiyaa gayaa e.g. Kamaraa saaf kiyaa gayaa. Subject ke joDane par yah vaakya banataa hai - Kamaraa usake dwaaraa saaf kiyaa gayaa hai. Mahatva Action par hai.

Kabhee kabhee Passive voice banaate samay kuchh shabd - someone / somebody / one's aadi ko haTaa diyaa jaataa hai e.g. Active voice :Kisee ne hamaaree cycle churaa lee hai. Passive voice : Hamaaree cycle churaa lee gai hai. Aise vaakya jab Passive voice se Active voice meiN badale jaataa hai, yah shabd -someone / somebody / one's aadi punah joD diye jaate hai.
