One of the most popular ways to identify passive voice is by adding “by zombies” after the action. If the sentence still makes sense, it’s passive. Here are some examples showing the difference.

  • “Mistakes were made [by zombies]” vs “I made a mistake [by zombies].”
  • “The sandwich was eaten [by zombies]” vs “Greg ate the sandwich [by zombies].”
  • “The essay was written [by zombies]” vs, “The student wrote the essay [by zombies].”
