Fill in the blank: The following sentence is an example of ____________ voice? “The grocery shopping was done by your father.”

(A) Active

(B) Passive

(C) Reactive

(D) Subtle


In Passive voice, the subject receives the action whereas in Active voice the subject performs the action.

If you had to change it to Active voice then you’ll write “Father did the Grocery Shopping”.
