Present, Past, Future Perfect Continuous, Future Continuous – Voice

We have done the active and passive voice of almost all the categories of Sentences ( Tense, Modal, Imperative etc ) Here we will change the voice of four tenses – Present Perfect Continuous, Past Perfect Continuous, Future Perfect Continuous and Future Continuous Tense.

There is always the confusion whether these tenses have passive voice or not. Generally, it is assumed that they don’t have. As a result, teachers don’t make us do them during our doing this topic. This fact has been etched in our mind since our junior classes.

However let me tell you that these tenses have voice. We will do them one by one.
