In the passive voice, the noun that would be the object of an active sentence appears as the subject of a sentence with passive voice, so, the action described by the verb is being done to the subject by an agent.

Examples:

1. John read the book in one week. (active)

    The book was read by John in one week. (passive)

2. Mike buys a car. (active)

    A car is bought by Mike. (passive)
