Unit 6 - The Passive

CBSE CLASS 9 - English Communications Workbook - Unit 6 - The Passive (Answers) (#cbsenotes) (#eduvictors)

Q1: Here is a newspaper report of a young girl who went back in time to see how her home town looked seventy years ago.

Dehra Times

Purkul, 7 July, 09

It is reported that Kareena, a twelve year old girl living in Purkul, went back in time using a time machine.

Seventy years ago her home town was an ideal place to live in. Her home town had not been invaded by the marvels of technology. Industries had not been set up then, so the air was not polluted. She could see children playing in the garden. Some children were listening to the stories told by their grandmothers. Happiness and contentment prevailed everywhere.


In the newspaper report above, the focus is on the changes as observed by Kareena.

1. Kareena's hometown had not been invaded by the marvels of technology.

2. Industries had not been set up.

3. The air was not polluted.

4. Some children were listening to stories told to them by their grandmothers.

Did you know?
A passive construction does two things.
(i) it brings the object to the position of the subject.
(ii) it introduces the verb be and the past participle form of the verb. (-ed/ -en)

A passive construction is be used when
(a) the agent is unknown
     e.g. Gold jewellery worth one crore was found missing.

(b) the agent is too obvious
      e.g. The speeding car was stopped at the signal for violating the traffic rules.

(c) the process is more important than the doer.
      e.g. Vanilla flavour is added to the milkshake.

(d) the speaker wants to hide the source for confidentiality.
e.g. I was informed that the staff accept gifts from the customers.
