Write two sentences using the word talk.

In the first sentence, use the verb in the active voice; in the second sentence use it in the passive voice.

Hi Guadalupe,

You were supposed to use the word "talk."

It looks like you tried "persuade" instead.

But there are still problems with the active and passive voice here.

You have gotten the active voice correct, though you could also say something like:

"I will persuade my parents to buy me a car."

The passive voice would be something like:

"My parents will be persuaded to buy me a new car."
