*ACTIVE vs. PASSIVE*

Write two sentences using the word correct.

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

Good try, rehabo. You got the active and passive correct. But there is a subject-verb agreement error in your second sentence. Can you see it?

I think you have misunderstood the instructions, Yu Jin. You were supposed to use the word "correct" in your sentences. Otherwise, you seem to understand the difference between active and passive.

Well done, Liudmila and Audrey!
