Starting with a general test on present and past simple passives and moving on to the delightful subject of prepositions!
Be careful with the singular / plural & past / present forms of the verb 'to be' and remember those past participles.
We use the passive voice when the 'agent' is unknown, not mentioned or important, or when the focus of the sentence is the the result of the action. Good luck all!
