She prints documents. (Active)
The documents are printed. (Passive)

2. The active verb changes into the passive form.

We plant trees every year. (Active)
The trees are planted every year. (Passive)
3. The subject of the active sentence becomes the agent.

Sarah baked a cake. (Active)
The cake is baked by Sarah. (Passive)
4. Object pronouns becomes subject pronouns.
He sent this letter to me. (Active)
I was sent this letter. (Passive)
5. When the subject is one of these words: one, someone, they, he  and etc., the agent is often omitted in the passive sentence.

6. Only the verbs that take an object can be turned into the passive.

It is raining today. ( it is impossible to change into the passive because the verb has no the object)
