Active and Passive Voice

Voice is a grammatical term that is used to tell whether the subject of the sentence is acting or is receiving the action expressed by the verb.

Active Voice

The form of the verb which shows the importance of its subject in the active action is called an Active Voice.

  • Madonna sings a song.
  • Jordan plays basketball.
  • Students are making a loud noise.
  • Grandparents love their grandchildren a lot.
  • The tortoise wins the race.
  • We learn our lessons daily

  • Aloud noise is being made by the students.
  • Grandchildren are loved a lot by their grandparents.
  • The race is won by the tortoise.
