Questions

Subject: SAT

Question:

What is the difference between affect and effect and how would you correct one over the other on the SAT?

Inactive
Katherine K.
Answer:

Affect is an action, and effect is a noun. If the sentence has a subject, and the verb is what I am trying to figure out, I would write affect. If the sentence is asking for a subject or an object, I would put effect because I am looking for a noun.

Question:

What type of voice is this sentence: "The book was written in 1845"? Passive or active and how do you know?

Answer:

The sentence is in passive voice, and I know this because there is no subject in the sentence, as there is no one doing the action of writing the book.
