Passives English quiz
Try out this passives English quiz to test your English grammar (English level B2). Sentences occur in the active voice or the passive voice and in different grammar tenses. In the active form, the subject is the person or thing that performs an action (e.g. The company sells more computers every year). In passives, the person performing the action is not the main focus and the subject changes (e.g. More computers are sold every year).
Read the text and type the correct verb form in the passive voice. There are only ten questions - can you get all of them right? Good luck!
