form of Passive

Form of Passive
         Subject  +  finite form of to be  + Past Participle
Example: A letter was written.
When rewriting active sentences in passive voice, note the following:
Firstly you should identify the main component of the active sentence
 ( the subject   , the verb    and     the object )
       We                   saw              the accident     
* the object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence                                                                       يتحول المفعول الى فاعل نبدا به الجملة
* the finite form of the verb is changed (to be + past participle)
نضع    مصرفا فى زمن الفعل الاصلى بما يلائم المبتدأ الجديد ثم نضع التصريف الثالث للفعل الاصلى أا   
* the subject of the active sentence becomes the object of the passive sentence (or is dropped)

اذا دعت الضرورة لذكر الفاعل يوضع فى نهاية الجملة على هيئة مفعول
