Your answers are highlighted below.
Question 1
They say that you did that.
A
You are told to do that
B
You are advised to do that
C
You did that said by them
D
You are said to have done that
Question 1 Explanation:
Instead of the past participle forms of the verb ‘say’, option (a) and option (b) use different verbs altogether. Hence, they change the meaning of the sentence. So, we reject them. In option (c), the verb form is wrong and the sentence structure is also inaccurate.
Question 2
Don't laugh at me.
A
Let me be laughed at.
B
Let me be not laughed at.
C
I am laughed at.
D
Let me be not laughed.
Question 2 Explanation:
The meaning of the sentence needs to be same after the conversion. Only option (d) satisfies this. Therefore, the right choice would be option (b).
Question 3
This shirt cannot be worn by me any longer.
A
I cannot wear this shirt any longer
B
Wearing of this shirt any longer is not possible
C
This shirt is too worn out to be worn any longer
D
This worn out shirt cannot be worn any longer
Question 3 Explanation:
The sentence provided is in passive form. We need to convert it in active voice. Option (d) and (c) are wrong as they include new information ‘worn out’ which is not present in the original sentence. Option (b) is also incorrect as it also introduces a new phrase ‘not possible’. Also, it is only option (a) that is in active form and no other.
Question 4
A lion does not eat grass, however hungry he may be.
A
Grass is not eaten by a lion, however hungry he may be
B
Grass is not being eaten by a lion, however hungry he may be
C
Grass is eaten not by a lion, however hungry he may be
D
Grass is being not eaten by a lion, however hungry he may be
Question 4 Explanation:
Simple present ‘does not eat’ needs to become ‘not eaten’ for the conversion into passive form. So, option (b) and option (d) are rejected as they use ‘being’ which is generally used with present or past continuous forms. Out of option (a) and option (c), the latter is rejected as it does not conform to proper sentence formation rules.
Question 5
We are reaching the end of this exercise.
A
This exercise is ended by us.
B
The end of this exercise is being reached by us.
C
This is our end to the exercise.
D
The exercise has reached its end by us.
Question 5 Explanation:
Option (a) and Option (c) are totally out of question as it drastically changes the meaning of the sentence. The sentence being in present continuous form, it needs its verb to be converted into the ‘being’ form for the right transformation (i.e. to passive voice). Hence, option (b) is correct.
