V.Mahendiran's basic grammar task 1.3

 Now you could perfectly identify the voice, tense and transitivity; also could change the voice of any kind of sentence.

Although the same exercise has been trialled earlier, for an aim of sharpening and enhancing skill to form a sentence, it’s practiced again; surely you will realize the importance of this exercise because, forming sentences under the standardised rules is a first requirement of a learner.

* Read each of the following sentences, identify the voice, tense and statement of each, state transitive or not if it is in active voice, state personal or impersonal if it is in passive voice and change the voice.[ Do remember Only transitive in active and personal in passive can be changed the voice]
