Regarding Voice

Postby mahbubp » Wed Jan 25, 2012 4:54 am

Dear Alan

I think the following sentence is a passive voice

There was a nice lady named Purbasha.

If I transform it as a passive in Present tense then it will be "There is a nice lady named Purbasha

Am I Correct?

Thanks a lot

Yes, the phrase 'named Purbasha' is passive, and your transformation is correct.
