Passive Voice of Perfect Future Tense

In passive voice of perfect future tense of affirmative sentence, we use modal verb ‘shall/ will’ with ‘have’, ‘been’ and past participle that is third form of verb.  In this topic, we shall discuss the formation and changing active to passive voice of perfect future tense.

 Passive Voice of Perfect Future Tense- Formation

In this, we use modal verb according to the subject that is-

  • If subject of passive voice is first person, singular or plural number that is ‘I’ or ‘we’, we use modal verb ‘shall’.
  • For subject of second person singular or plural number that is ‘you’, we use modal verb ‘will’.
  • If subject is third person singular number that is ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘it’ or any other singular number, we use ‘will’.
  • For third person plural number that is ‘they’ or any other plural number, we use ‘will’.

It means, we should use ‘shall’ for only when subject is first person, singular or plural number. Except subject of first person; we should use ‘will’.

In passive voice of perfect future tense– positive, negative, interrogative and negative interrogative, we use past participle (third form) of verb.

Keep in mind that we should arrange the sentence in the following form-

  • Active sentence- subject + shall/ will + have + past participle of verb + object
  • Passive sentence- object of the active sentence + shall/ will +have + been + past participle ( third form ) of verb + by + subject of the active sentence

Example of Perfect Future Tense- Transformation

Now we shall take an example of prefect future tense and transform it into passive voice.

Have a look–

Active: She will have drawn a picture tomorrow. (draw – base form)

For this, first you should learn the formation of perfect future tense.

Above sentence is in the form-

  • Subject + will + have + past participle of verb + object + remaining word

Passive: A picture will have been drawn by her tomorrow. (drawn- past participle of draw)

Passive voice of this sentence is in the form-

  • Object in active + will + have + been + past participle of ‘draw’+ by + subject in active  + remaining word.

In above sentence, we can see the changes in the transformation of active to passive voice as:

  • Object of active form (picture) became subject.
  • Subject ‘she’ became object- ‘her’.
  • Modal verb ‘will’ is used.
  • ‘Have’ with ‘been’ is added (she- third person, singular)
  • Past participle of verb ‘draw’ that is ‘drawn’ is taken.
