The Indians expected to win the cricket trophy. Basic rules to be fol
Right Answer is: C
Basic rules to be followed for Active/Passive conversions are:
1. The object of the active verb becomes the subject of the passive verb.
2. The finite form of the verb is changed (to be+ past participle).
3. The subject of the active sentence becomes the object of the passive sentence (or is dropped).
4. Preposition ‘by’ is used before object.
The given sentence is in active form of past negative indefinite tense. The structures for active/passive voices are:
Active: Subject + did not + verb (Ist form) + object…
Passive: Object + was/were + not + verb (IIIrd form) + by + subject…
Option B and D is incorrect because this construction suggests the idea that the Indian win was expected by all. So Option C is the correct answer.
