Affirmative and negative passive

As you already know, we use the passive voice when the action is more important than the person who does the action, or when this person is not known or doesn't want to be mentioned.

Contingut exercicis

The passive voice is formed with:

subject + [to be + Past Participle] + by + agent

The negative is formed by adding “not” right after the verb “to be” or the auxiliary verb in case there is one in the active voice: “have, has, had, will, must, could, should...”.

Notice that you can use contractions. So, you can either use “is not” and “isn't”.

For example:

The television is being repaired

The television is not being repaired

A song has been recorded by Lisa

A song hasn't been recorded by Lisa

It will be made tomorrow

It won't be made tomorrow
