Question:

What is "passive voice"?

Julianna M.
Answer:

The passive voice is a grammatical construction. A passive voice construction occurs when you make the object of an action into the subject of a sentence. Use of the passive voice is not a grammatical error, but rather a stylistic choice that can obscure the clarity of a sentence's meaning. An example of the passive voice would be: "The pizza was eaten by the student". You can see that while this sentence is grammatically correct, it would be simpler and more clear to say "The students ate the pizza".

Answer:

A thesis statement is a sentence in the introductory paragraph of an essay that states the main idea of the essay. It makes an argumentative or persuasive declaration that the writer then backs up with facts and examples in the following body paragraphs.
