Passive voice?


Here’s a handy trick lots of middle-schoolers use if you’re uncertain whether your verb is passive or not. if you can insert “by zombies” after the verb, you have passive voice.zombies
She was killed [by zombies.]” <—- Makes sense? Yes. It’s passive voice.

“Zombies killed [by zombies] her.” <—- Makes sense? No. It’s active voice.
