The passive voice is defined as a construction or a verbal inflection in which the subject remains in a state of passivity in the sentence, calling him a patient subject. Meanwhile, the action carried out by the lexical class that reflects an action is carried out by the so-called agent complement and not the agent subject, which would be called that in the active voice.
Therefore, it is a type of conjugation in which the subject takes the grammatical role on behalf of a noun or pronoun that provides meaning to the logical object on the action to which the verb refers.
The sentence in the passive voice is structured in a general way with an object, an action, a by and a subject. Next, different sentences with this type of verbal inflection will be manifested.
