Passive voice order sentence: Object pronouns.

Post by Viktor » Wed Nov 06, 2019 5:17 pm

Hi to everyone, I have this question because I am puzzled.

How do you rewrite the next active voice sentence in passive voice? I mean which of the sentences below are correct or incorrect.

The active voice sentences:
"He doesn't expect us to offer him the job".

Possible answers:
A Passive voice:
-We aren't expected to offer him the job.
-We aren't expected to offer the job by him.
-The Job isn't expected to be offered to him.
-The Job isn't expected to be offered to him by us.
-The Job isn't expected from us to be offered to him.
-The Job isn't expected from us to be offered by him.

#1 is fully acceptable standard usage.

#3&4 are comprehensible to some extent but unidiomatic.

The rest are ungrammatical/meaningless.
