Grammar (The Passive)
REMEMBER: We use the passive voice when
 we focus on what happened (the action) rather than who did
it(agent). Two women were killed last night.
 we don’t know who did something  This carpet was made in
India.
 we prefer not to mention who did something.  I can’t reveal
my sources but I was told you lied.
 the object of an active sentence is more important than the
subject.  John was killed by his uncle.

STEPS
1) The direct/indirect object becomes the subject of the new
sentence.
2) The verb TO BE has the form/tense of the main verb.
3) The main verb is put into the past participle form.
4) The old subject becomes an agent, introduced by “by”.
