Passive Voice of Past Continuous Tense

Rules of Active and Passive voice (mentioned below) shows that helping verb 'Was/Were + Being' is used with 3rd form of verb for making Passive Voice of Past Continuous Tense.

Helping Verb in Passive Voice is used as per the Subject of the Passive Voice (Object of Active voice which becomes Subject of Passive Voice). If the Subject of Passive Voice is plural, Helping Verb of plurals will be used irrespective of the fact that in Active Voice, the subject was Singular.

In case of Negative sentence, 'Not + Being' is added after helping verbs and in case of Interrogative sentence helping verb comes in the starting of the sentence and place of 'Being' remains before Verb (3rd form)

In all types of sentences - Positive, Negative & Interrogative, 3rd form of verb is used in Passive Voice.

Active and Passive Voice ke niyam (neeche diye gaye hai) dikhaate hai kee Past Continuous Tense ko Passive Voice meiN badalane ke liye 'Was/Were + Being' aur Verb kee 3rd form kaa prayog hotaa hai.

Passive Voice meiN Helping Verb Passive Voice ke Subject (Active Voice kaa Object jo Passive Voice meiN Subject banataa hai) ke anusaar istemaal hotee hai. Agar Passive Voice kaa Subject plural hai to Helping Verb bhee plural subject ke anusaar hotee chaahe Active Voice meiN Subject singular thaa.

Negative sentence meiN 'Not + Being' ko helping verb ke baad lagaate hai aur Interrogative sentence meiN helping verb vaakya ke aaraambh meiN lagaate hai.

Sabhee prakaar ke Passive Voice vaakyo meiN - Positive, Negative & Interrogative, verb kee 3rd form kaa prayog hotaa hai.
