Independent Learning Log 4

Source : https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/539/02/

What I did : I read up on Active voice vs Passive voice and how to change them from active to passive voice.

What I learnt : Active voice is usually from a first person context and passive voice is usually from a third person context. Active voice is clear and concise for the reader whereas Passive voice can cloud your sentence.




Another example would be :

Cats eat Fishes ( Active )
Fishes are eaten by Cats ( Passive )
