Changing a sentence into the passive when the active verb is in the future perfect tense

December 19, 2012pdf

The future perfect tense forms are made by putting ‘will / shall + have’ before the past participle form of the verb. These sentences can be changed into the passive if the active verb has an object. The passive verb form in the future perfect tense is made by putting ‘will / shall + have been’ before the past participle form of the verb.

Active verb form: will/shall + have + past participle form of the verb

Passive verb form: will/shall + have been + past participle form of the verb
