IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER

  1. In the first and last sentence we have not used “by + subject” and the reason behind this is many actions are done by a particular person only like –

  1. Only a boss can fire employee

  2. Generally a housekeeper or cleaner cleans the mess

So in such sentences “by + subject” is not required.

 

NOTE

We can’t convert a sentence in passive voice in which any form of “be” is used as the main verb of the sentence .

I was busy at that time.   (active voice)

(main verb)
