Passive Voice of Simple Future Tense

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

 Passive Voice of Simple Future Tense- Formation

In this, we use modal verb- shall or will. Modal verb is a type of an auxiliary verb. We should use shall/ will according to the subject that is-

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

It means we use ‘will’ for all subjects except first person.

In passive voice of simple 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 + base form of verb + object
  • Passive sentence- object of the active sentence + shall / will+ be + past participle ( third form ) of the verb + by + subject of the active sentence

Example of Simple Future Tense- Transformation

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

Have a look–

Active: She will draw a picture today. ( draw – base form)

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

Above sentence is in the form-

  • Subject + will + verb (base form) + object + remaining word

Passive: A picture will be drawn by her today. ( drawn- past participle of draw)

Passive voice of this sentence is in the form-

  • Object in active + will + be + 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 and be is added
  • Past participle of verb ‘draw’ that is ‘drawn’ is taken.
