Sentence Correction: Passive

Which of the following is the active equivalent of this sentence?

John will have been hired by Doodle.

The passive equivalent of this answer choice is John will be hired by Doodle.

The original sentence includes the verb have. The transition to passive does not involve elimination of words. Thus, the correct answer should also include the verb have.

Try again:

Which of the following is the active equivalent of this sentence:

John will have been hired by Doodle.

Well done!

This answer choice shows the correct **active** form for the sentence: _John will have been hired by Doodle_. Since the original contains the **passive verb** _will have been_ and we know that the **passive** involves adding the **verb** _to be_ in some form, by taking away the _been_ we now revert back to the **active** sense.

The passive equivalent of this answer choice is John has been hired by Doodle. Note that the original sentence is in the future tense, whereas this answer choice is in the present tense.

Try again:

Which of the following is the active equivalent of this sentence:

John will have been hired by Doodle.

This sentence is in the future tense, so we can eliminate answer choice 3: Doodle have hired John, which is not in the future (as can be seen by the lack of will).

That leaves us with answer choices 1 and 2. Which one is closer to the original sentence?

1. Doodle will hire John.

2. Doodle will have hired John.

Answer choice 2 is closer as it keeps the original will have. Thus, answer choice 2 is the correct answer.

The passive equivalent of this answer choice is John will be hired by Doodle.

The original sentence includes the verb have. The transition to passive does not involve elimination of words. Thus, the correct answer should also include the verb have.

The correct answer is Doodle will have hired John.

The passive equivalent of this answer choice is John has been hired by Doodle. Note that the original sentence is in the future tense, whereas this answer choice is in the present tense.

The correct answer is Doodle will have hired John.

Doodle will hire John.
Doodle will have hired John.
Doodle have hired John.

I don't know.

Doodle will have hired John.
Doodle have hired John.

I don't know.

Doodle will hire John.
Doodle will have hired John.

I don't know.
