Active and Passive Voice – Exercises for Class 7

Voice is the form of the verb that signifies whether the subject of a sentence does an action or has an action done to it. Verbs can have two different voices: active and passive.

The sentences in which the subject performs the action and the object receives it, are said to be in active voice. When the verb in a sentence tells us that the subject is not the doer of the action, the sentence is in the passive voice.
